Explore the peaceful focus of wire craft to make truly unique and personal gifts or decorations in relaxed, supported, sociable & inspiring environments.
Festive Wire Writing & Decorations: Learn about working with a selection of craft wires and practice wire-bending style & techniques to design and create festive words or doodles on a variety of scales. Use your designs to make a word hanging, 'floating' wall art, a decorated rustic copper wreath (festive or otherwise!), OR smaller decorations for your tree or shelf, embellish blank gift tags, place-cards, cracker labels. Alternatively, carry on with an in-progress project from a previous #peaceandcraft session.
This three-hour session should give you time to make one full wall/door sized wreath with a chunky wire word & simple styling/ bespoke embellishments of your choice, OR a collection of smaller decorative wire items, tree decorations or ornaments - the amount you take away will depend on what you decide to make, how quickly you take to the wire writing techniques and how much peace vs craft you choose to absorb!
Everyone will go away with project(s) to be proud of, festive or for year-round decor; perfect decorations, table trims, tags or gifts.
Beautiful, accessible, rewarding craft is at the core of all our sessions, however 'Peace & Craft' is actually all about the bigger picture. Gorgeous creativity aside, the truest benefits and value of these sessions is in the self-care and distraction from overwhelm - so crucial for us all in these busy busy times.
Take a bit of time out to be crafty, drink tea & coffee, eat sweet things, be yourself - just for you, let creativity heal & refresh you, develop skills and create something beautiful to be proud of.
Materials, tools & refreshments included, with a well-stocked craft supplies shop on the other side of the door for anything extra you might want to incorporate. Suitable for all craftiness levels.

Other Venues - If you can't see a project and/or date with availability that works for you, do contact our lovely friends Koala Kreations in Chipping Sodbury, The Craft Room in WUE & Loving Home in WUE who are hosting bespoke AnnaJane & #peaceandcraft workshops as part of their own in-house schedules this season.
[Dates at The Craft Room or Studio AJD are able to welcome a limited number of new mums with 'pre-mover' babies to daytime sessions with prior notice. The earliest months of motherhood can be some of the most valuable times to re-discover & protect a mother's vital sense of self - being creative is one of a handful of recognised effective methods. I undertake to support and enable this whenever possible. Any questions - please contact prior to booking.]
