On the Sunday morning, some of us had booked into a workshop, to make Steampunk Goggles! I wasn't sure what to expect here, I was just happy to be doing a workshop! And I had the best morning ever!
I will start at the end by showing you what we made - although I've put it upside down in the picture! We used Treasure Gold for the front bits - and were all instantly hooked and rushed out to buy some!
Di Oliver from Tando Creative was our instructor, and what a lovely lady she is! Very is so kind and friendly, very generous with the products we were using, and completely unphased by being with all us loud crazy ladies!
I had a lovely chat with Di about her designing of the different shapes in the afternoon. It was a real treat meeting her. You can see the Tando products on the Craft Barn website here.
They are shaped using an embossing tool and a foam mat - you can use the back of a mousemat. Using the embossing tool in a circular movement in the centre of the flower makes the petals fold up. You can see Jane's blog here.
Of course there were many more demonstrations, but if you want to know more you will have to join us there next year! I hope you do - it's such fun!
One of my favourite people, who I don't have a photo of, is Liz Welch. I can't talk about the Extravaganza without mentioning her, she is so talented - but I couldn't get near her table when she was demonstrating as she was constantly surrounded by a 3 deep crowd! Take a look at Liz's blog here, and be inspired by her fantastic ways with friendly plastic.
Love and smiles,
