We value our family, our making community and the wider population. Personally, and as a business that interacts regularly with people, our number one priority is to protect everyone and do everything in our power to slow the spread of COVID – 19. As per medical advice, one of the best strategies we can employ is social distancing.
Therefore, effective immediately, all workshops and private lessons have been put on hold. We will review this situation on an on-going basis and stay in regular contact with you about where we are at.
If you have already booked and paid for a workshop, we will contact each of you personally via email to discuss your options.
If you have already booked a private lesson, we will contact you personally via email as well.
EXISTING ORDERS: Any custom orders that are already in progress will be completed and dispatched. If you wish to collect a completed order, please get in touch to arrange.
NEW ORDERS: We are still working on custom projects and are happy to undertake new projects while we are not busy with workshops. Please contact us if we can help you in any way with a new lampshade, footstool, ottoman, cushions, etc.
ONLINE SHOP REMAINS OPEN
Our shop will remain open and we are happy to process orders for lampshade kits, fabric and other items. Please check back from time to time as we will be adding new products.

SPECIAL OFFERS AND CREATIVE IDEAS
Obviously, we are going to take a financial hit as we “batten down the hatches” for a while. Already, behind the scenes, we are brain-storming creative solutions to help build community, feed your inner creative and to maintain some cash-flow.
Keep making!!! Everyone’s resilience will be stretched to the limit as this virus spreads. It is uncharted territory and we all need to protect our emotional well-being, especially if we are feeling isolated, distressed and out of control. Making grounds us when we need it and the simple pleasure of creating can really lift our spirits.
Please stay tuned for the initiatives that we are developing. We hope they’ll keep you a little bit more upbeat, provide a focus and feed you emotionally!!
