i’m lucky enough to work at the adorable shop do re me and if you haven’t popped in, you really must because its chock full of
nuts beautiful handmade adorableness. but if you can’t make it there during business hours, why not come in for a class in the evening? let me tell you about a couple that i’m running.
first up, on tuesday june 7th come in for 2 hours (7.30-9.30pm) of felt flower brooch making. these beauties (based on the awesome pattern by the awesome notmartha) are deadly easy – i made a whole bunch in one evening, and i get compliments every time i wear one. who doesn’t like compliments?! the class is $50AUD per person and that covers ALL materials including the delicious pure wool felt from little sparrow. there are only a couple of spots left in this class so call and book quiiiiiiick!

on tuesday july 5th i’ll be hosting a two hour session (7.30-9.30pm) instructing you on the art of stab stitch, or ‘japanese’ book binding. we’ll make a cute little book from scratch and you’ll leave with a perfectly formed jotter/journal/sketchbook. and the best bit is….

lucky participants in this class will get to use some of my freshly-purchased-in-japan paper stash! and you know how good that paper is going to be. this class is $50AUD per person, and all materials are included.
do not delay, call do re me today and secure your place, because there are only EIGHT spots remaining and i want to see some of you awesome readers there. these classes are relaxed, and fun. you come, you chat, you have a glass of wine or mulled cranberry and a cookie and you leave with a finished item, and a new skill! sounds like an evening and a $50 well spent if you ask me (go on, ask me.. i might be biased though)
do re me is at 27 horne st, elsternwick and you can get there by train (elsternwick station is a few steps away) or by tram (the one that goes up glen huntley rd) or by bus (the one that goes up horne st..helpful, huh?)
we’re organizing more classes for later in the year soon (including kid’s school holiday workshops) so if you have some skill you’re interested in learning from me, let me know!
