Workshop photos - Country View Crafts

Hi Everyone Brenda here.

As many of you know we have added workshops to our list of products to offer you at Country View Crafts and the first one took place on the 23rd January in the village hall at Flitwick, Bedforsdshire. We had 11 lovely ladies join us to make a vintage tag journal for the day and what a day we had. The ladies travelled from Lincolnshire and Surrey as well as surrounding towns and villages in Bedfordshire and during the day they not only created their wonderful pages but they met and made new friendships too.

So beware as I progress on with this post it is photo heavy, but we wanted to show the concentration, hard work and fun of the day.

Sorry can't remember which set belonged to who now.

Most people brought their own photos to use so that their finished book was personalised and full of their family memories.

The venue was beautifully light and airy with a kitchen close on hand.

Here's Susan and Marilyn getting a cup of tea and of course there were plenty of lovely things to keep our energy up during the day.

Jane took some photos and has kindly given me permission to use them (thanks Jane).

Yours truly demoing

Highlighting techniques we were using ....

.... and generally on hand to help and support where necessary.

We are looking forward to designing and organising another workshop at Flitwick asap as this fabulous group of ladies want me to come back again. But let us know if you would like us to see if we could arrange this tag journal workshop at a location near you.

Have a great week.
