June's Handmade Paper and Journal-Making Workshop looked like a dream, and I'm so glad our attendees had a great time learning from host Susan from Born In Paper. Thank you Susan for bringing your skills from Byron Bay to Western Victoria! :)
Tucked away in Dunkeld's cutest converted railway station turned arts space; Off The Rails, our cohort of creative women tried their hand at pulling paper from a mould and deckle in all the colours of the pastel rainbow, embossing sheets and making each page unique with flowers, seeds and colours. They also used a range of handmade papers to make a gorgeous journal with simple binding and a button fastening- almost too beautiful to use!
For this month's Crafternoon we're doing something a little different- it's time for another casual crafty catch-up, where we bring along whatever craft project we're working on and just socialise over a drink or two and meet like-minded folk. This time we'll be in Hamilton's best bar; Mumbler, because they have a roaring fire, couches, drinks on tap, a cocktail and mocktail menu to die for, and fabulous coffee.
If you'd like to come along we'll be there from 5.30 until around 8pm on Thursday 27th July. Drop in whenever and stay for as long as you like, it's casual, open-invite and totally free (just bring $ for your refreshments).
See you next Thursday!
