Creative and Crafty Workshops

Join me at a relaxed, fun and friendly two-hour creative and crafty workshop in Brighton. No experience necessary.  All materials will be provided although you are welcome to bring your own.  Groups will be small so early booking is strongly recommended.

Getting creative offers a wonderful opportunity to practice mindfulness which, in turn, improves mental and physical wellbeing. Leave the chaos and stress of daily life at the door and immerse yourself in a couple of hours of joyous creativity.  

The programme includes:

  • Transforming exquisite fabric ribbons into beautiful bows 
  • Making one of a kind gift bags
  • Creating your own fabulous fascinator – perhaps for an upcoming event
  • Making gorgeous greeting cards
  • Using seashells or ribbons to create wonderful wreaths
  • Making crackers for Christmas and other occasions
  • Upcycling an old box into a great gift basket packed with goodies, wrapped and ready to give
  • Simple but snazzy ways to wrap bottles
  • Wrapping with my life saving ‘cheat pleat’ –  when the paper is too short to go around a box
  • Crafty ways with old Christmas tree baubles

Check out dates and book upcoming events. Make a day of it and pop out for a delicious lazy lunch between sessions.  There are lots of wonderful restaurants and cafes nearby.  Perfect for a girly get-together!  Alternatively join me at a one-day gift wrapping or hamper & gift basket training course.

Get in touch to discuss a private event or if there is a workshop that you would like to see added to the list.

Instead of getting crafty yourself perhaps you’d like to buy something bespoke and handmade. Take a look at the bird boxes, willow wreaths and hand turned bowls that I make from recycled, upcycled and sustainable materials.  They make great gifts! 

“Who knew making bows could be such fun! I really enjoyed Arona’s workshop. We learnt how to make beautiful bows in a really inspiring atmosphere. Very enjoyable. From now on my present wrapping will be fabulous!!” Marilyn, Hove
