Christmas Pudding Baubles

Plump fleece pudding baubles topped with beads and sequins on glittery ribbon ready to hang on your tree. Made using simple stitches so suitable for beginners and experienced crafters alike. 

Manchester Craft Mafia were commissioned to run a series of drop-in workshops for Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Christmas Fair in Manchester. Designed to take 20-30 minutes to make while having a brew in the cafe.

Metallic Apples

My apple workshop using old partywear for some festive sparkle.

Fabric Decorations

Layered textile decorations embellished with embroidery and beads.

Salt-dough Tree Decorations

This can be done over 2 sessions as need to be baked in between or demo of how to make the salt-dough with ready baked versions to paint.

Printed Cards

Design and print simple festive designs using recycled polystyrene plates.

Each activity makes a good workshop for a festive event or combined a couple of Christmas crafts to make a full workshop.
