Tutor: Jackie G    Cost: £5

Event: Learn about Collage, the glues to use and be inspired
When: Saturday 2nd Feb 2019 : 10am-4pm

For 2019, we are trying a new concept here at Sir Stampalot - a "Show & Tell" series. Inviting regular crafters - just like you and me - to come and share their love and knowledge of particular craft. First up is our Jackie G with a GlueBook Party. Jackie G is a regular attendee at many a class both here and around the UK. She is extremely addicted to art journals, collage, and cutting up magazines! Jackie has gained lots of knowledge by attending classes taught by a wide range of tutors and used it to develop her own style. We know it’s not easy to get to classes in other places of the UK, so Jackie is keen for you not to miss out and wants to share her love of Collage with you guys - including types of glue to use etc and to show you her amazing journals she has created and her thoughts behind how she has created it. For a minimum fee just to book your place and cover the cost of a little GlueBook party kit, please join us for a fun and creative, sharing experience.

We've all got hundreds if not thousands of digital photos. Let's look at them off the screen and share them with others.

Tutor:     Cost: £2

Event: Craft Club Night
When: Currently First Thursday of every Month starting in Feb : 7pm - 9pm

Due to popular demand, we are re-introducing a monthly Christmas Club, but calling it "Craft Club Night" so you don't feel you have to make your Christmas Cards! It can be more like a 'UFO' session where you can come and carry on with projects you've started but not yet finished, make Christmas cards, start a scrapbook page, finish a crochet project or a knitting creations etc etc. Basically, any crafty project you wish to work on. We all have a 'bits box' as Kim Reygate calls it: a box of left-over papers, offcuts, embellishments, half coloured toppers and unfinished crafting projects - so bring your box of bits and it'll give you a chance to finish off those projects and simply have a crafty session with crafty friends.

Die cutting machines will be on hand to use along with various craft punches. Just £2 of the 2-hour session. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but you'll need to bring your own materials and consumables - no classes/teaching or materials are provided.

Happy Mail! - what's Happy Mail? I hear you cry - well, it's something you mail to someone, anyone that you think needs a smile or that makes you smile. Everyone needs a little something to brighten their day and this is a perfect way to do it. Something that gets delivered and makes someone's day a little happier. Awww. Mandy's really into this concept and can safely say it's tried and tested. The gals' Mandy has sent Happy Mail to have been so overwhelmed and speechless, and just so grateful that someone has thought of them and made the time and effort to create something just for them. Get the tissues ready!! In addition to the Happy Mail, Mandy has been creating Traveler's Notebooks and been having heaps of fun - so much so, she wants to share with you how to create one.

Backgrounds into Cards with Kay

Level: Any

Tutor: Kay    Cost: £10

Event: Turn those background panels into greeting cards with Kay
When: Thursday 28th Feb 2019 :: 7pm - 9pm

OK, so we all have them - left over card panels we've created using paints and inks, stencils and sprays. Do we ever do anything with this pile of background panels? Inevitably the answer is 'no' (well definitely with me it is!!) I never know what to do with them. Well, here's an ideal opportunity to get some hands-on inspiration. In this 2-hour session with Kay, we'll first create some backgrounds. Kay will then show us how to turn it into a greeting card that you'll be proud to send to someone. We'll concentrate on making one card but you'll have the materials enough to make four - a beautiful collection of cards made from scratch. Hopefully this crafty session with Kay, will give you the confidence to dig out that box of background panels you've previously created, and stashed away somewhere, and actually transform them into practical and useful greeting cards.
