Oh hi *waves* I am blogging! I told myself to go to my tumblr and blog about something that I’ve already taken photos of, and what do you know, I have a tonne of pics from my new creative business that I’m pretty sure I haven’t talked about here yet! (pretty sure)
So here we go, strap yourselves in ladies and gents, it’s exciting stuff (it really is!).
In March I started teaching classes at the Handmade Shop in civic, and it didn’t take me long to realise, I really enjoyed doing it. It all makes sense, I’m a trained teacher, and I’m a crafty person, so of course I would love to teach people crafty projects! I had already hosted a couple of Crafternoons at home with friends, and once my brain had recovered a bit more after having quite a bit of time off work already, it went into overdrive. And Canberra Creatives was born!
I teach resin workshops at the Shop, but also offer Crafternoons in people’s homes, where I bring all the materials, supplies and safety gear to you, and you bring your friends, and we whip up some awesome stuff! The resin workshop is by far the most popular at the moment, but the Glass Etching and Fabric Printing workshops are really fun too. I’m currently developing some kids parties and a “Martha Stewart Mega Party”, which will be amazing. Down the track I’m looking at doing a conference style something something, but that’s not quite formed properly in my brain yet, so we’ll just leave it at that.
One exciting thing that is on the horizon for Canberra Creatives is expanding the “products” section of the website, I’m just waiting to confirm some details with suppliers and soon I’ll have an awesome range for Canberra crafters to buy locally and support small business! Double win ;)
If you have taken any of my classes, make sure you take a photo of what you made and post it on my facebook page! =)
