Kristen Doran Workshop - Fabric Coasters

Yesterday we enjoyed the company of textiles and contemporary hand crafts designer, Kristen Doran, who came to teach us how to make fabric coasters. 

We were able to choose from some of her screen printed fabrics,including her crochet design and her winter nest. I chose the winter nest in a gorgeous new neon orange print - very contemporary !

It was lots of fun, great chatting together about family, tv shows, and all our other interests. It's so nice to work on projects in such warm, friendly company.

We have some other great workshops coming up in our schedule - so submit your booking to secure your place :)
