Social Isolation Classes

 

During this period of social isolation (self-isolation & social distancing) due to COVID-19, my classes have obviously changed.

I’m currently offering the following classes and packs (more may be added depending on demand):

 

Please visit my Class Timetable for class dates and booking deadlines, and to book your place. For Home Activity Packs, click here.

For those who ‘aren’t into’ making things themselves, check out my ‘Handmade Cards to the Recipient’s Door’ service.

If you aren’t available for the planned ‘live’ sessions, you can still book a place, receive the kits and create the projects at later date from a short recording of each session.

Card & (Your) Cuppa£5.50 per person

Weekly.

A pack of pre-punched/pre-printed items ready to assemble into a pre-designed card.

A video session using Zoom will be arranged for us to craft together on a Monday – 10:30-12:00. If you’ve ordered the kit, but can’t make the live session, you can, of course, create your project at a different time using the short video posted afterwards (live, real-time assistance will not be available).

I would like you to share your projects to the relevant Facebook posts as requested.

Booking closes at 18:00 two weeks beforehand to allow time for the packs to be prepared and posted.

 

Mystery Pack£5.50 per person

Fortnightly (opposite week to BYO Stamps @ Home).

A pack of pre-punched/pre-printed items/embellishments etc where you can let your imagination run wild and create your own card using the items provided. Everyone will receive the same items each week and you’ll be allowed a certain set of ‘extra’ items – such as scissors or colouring pencils etc.

You will need to upload your completed project for the required Facebook Post on the Wednesday morning from 09:30. This is for inspiration to others.

I’ll also upload my creation and a short video on how I created it after the deadline.

Booking closes at 18:00 two weeks beforehand to allow time for the packs to be prepared and posted, and for you to create your project.

 

BYO Stamps @ Home£10 per person

Fortnightly (opposite week to Mystery Pack).

3 packs of cardstock/embellishments etc. You will then use your own stamps and inks to create 3 different cards based on designs I have pre-created.

A video session using Zoom will be arranged for us to craft together fortnightly on a Thursday morning (10:00-12:30). For those of you who ordered the kits, but can’t make the live session, you can, of course, create your projects at a different time using the short video posted afterwards (live, real-time assistance will not be available).

I would like you to share your projects to the relevant Facebook posts as requested.
