Special Shopping Afternoon

As a little thank you to our lovely customers we're holding an special shopping afternoon on Wednesday 16th November from 3pm-7pm.  It's free to pop in and we'll be providing some sherry and mince pies whilst you browse... plus a little pressie with your purchase.  We hope you can join us.

Phiona Richards Paper Craft Workshops

On Saturday 5th November, Book Sculptor and Paper Artist Phiona will be spending the day with us here at the shop, sharing her skills in two unique workshops.  From 11am-1pm you could join her Kusadama Workshop for £20, where you will learn the basic origami folds required to create a beautiful paper flower decoration for your Christmas tree (as above). 
Or from 2pm-5pm, you could take part in her Paper Bangle Workshop.  For £25 you could re-use that old book or magazine using origami folds and turn it into a stunning bangle embellished with beads of your choice.  As always, all materials are provided and tea & homemade cake will be on tap... For more information about Phiona click here.

Sunday Tea Party next weekend...

You know how much we love tea and cake... So we're going to spend next Sunday 30th October indulging!  From 11am-4pm we're holding a Tea Party at the shop with ladies from the WI who will be showing off their traditional craft skills.  Come and join us at any point during the day to learn something new!  The event is free... tea and cake will be in plentiful supply... and you can feast without an ounce of guilt as it's a fundraiser for Nottingham Breast Cancer Support Group.

Illustrations from Helen Lang

We've had a new arrival at the shop with a collection of beautiful limited edition prints from Helen Lang. Her intricate ink illustrations feature birds, swirls and flowing typography surrounded by delicate patterns.  We think her work would look perfect on your walls at home...
