Fancy having some neon to light up your life? Stuck for a pressie idea for the friend who has everything? Or just fancy getting creative for a few hours and doing something a little bit different? Here at Make Me Neon we have a real thing about neon and we believe that everyone should have some neon lighting up their life. During this three hour class you will be taken through each stage of the creative process and will be provided with everything you need to create your masterpiece including a glass of fizz to get the creative juices flowing (obvs!). We use 40 x 50 cm artist's canvases and battery powered LED neon wire in either pink, green or light blue so it's a far less dangerous affair than working with proper neon and it also means you can display your handiwork without any unsightly wires on display. You don't need to be very creative or artistic you just have to want to create something fabulous in neon and we can help with the rest.

Bespoke Reclaimed Leather Shoemaking

From all the workshops I have been on, this one has been the most theraputic. Pick your materials, string, sole and get cracking! Good thing is when your hands start to hurt a little bit, you can ask for help. The shoes turned out to be very comfortable with.

Bespoke Reclaimed Leather Shoemaking

The ladies are very nice and open to trying new designs for your shoes. I needed their help with the tricky parts (like the corners), but loved the shoes we made. Great gift.

Thank you to Amy for a fab day of sewing with a great group of fellow sewing enthusiasts. Even though I have a basic understanding of dressmaking Amy taught me the right way of sewing a shift dress without getting into a muddle!Amy is a very good and patient tutor. Thank you!
