Dear crafty friends,

We have been busily creating spring inspired goodies at our monday craft sessions.
Our rainbow mother and baby bird were lots of fun to make.
Over 30 people came to this workshop.

Our silk dying workshops are also a big favourite with our mums. With just yellow and blue and a touch of pink we created some stunning spring playcloths for our seasonal tables.
We created a rainbow angel mobile in hounour of our newest craft baby Skyla.
She loves it!The ladies worked in pairs to make the mobile which was really enjoyable .
Our Australian animal series continued with the rascally dingo designed by Dionne.
Isnt he gorgeous!

 We held a saturday workshop showcasing Christina Lane with her needlefelted spring maiden.
She is truly the queen of facial detail!

This bee hive was inpired by Satchico one of our talented mums.The coil basketry technique is so useful to make all sorts of containers.We are very lucky to have so many talented women in our group!
The chidren love to hide the bees inside the hive!
It can also be used as a string holder!

We have a couple of weeks left in the term befor our market so I will share them in the coming weeks!
Cheers for now .... nikki


  1. Wow! I am absolutely awed by the beautiful work you all have done together! I am inspired to bring some of these ideas to our local Steienr handwork group. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Now THOSE are craft sessions that I want to attend. All of the creations are incredible, but the beehive, oh how that beehive buzzes to me. All baskety and bee-y and just perfect.

  3. All so beautiful. How lovely to be surrounded by all of this. I am inspired. Thankyou.
