Peace & Craft - Wire Words
Thursday 17th Feb 10am-1pm
Explore tips and techniques for writing with wire in this calm and restorative workshop with Peace & Craft's Anna Marshall.
Mindfully explore word choices, handwriting styles, letter shapes and consider the aesthetics of language from a different angle.
Create, under expert guidance, from a choice of prepared words to introduce and practice simple techniques, followed by a chance to create a bespoke word or name using what you’ve learned..
Use your words & tips for incorporating mounting structures into your design to create hanging decorations, gift tokens, wall or door signs, self-standing surface decor.
This is truly a peaceful project - encouraging patience, control and a gentle but firm approach - great calming focus for a busy mind.
Anna Marshall is a long term multi-discipline crafter and hosts her Peace&Craft workshops around the Cotswolds and online. Growing up in a family of lots of different handcrafters and inheriting a pre-disposition for using what you have, Anna has tried most crafts, enjoyed the majority, favoured & practiced several and collected skills, techniques & inspirations along the way to create her own blended style of stitching, snipping, sticking and sketching.
After an eclectic career path, Anna is now a parent of primary age twins and works out of her home studio in South Gloucestershire on various creative endeavours, including selling her own handmade products and running regular creative sessions for a charity supporting new mothers facing post-natal challenges as well as her own scrapcrafting workshops.
Anna works alongside participants for a relaxed, inspirationally creative environment. Her simple & satisfying crafting sessions are accessible for all abilities and often offer demonstrations, techniques & examples rather than step by step projects. Anna will always encourage recycling, reclamation, 'make do and mend' and using every scrap, alongside helping her students find peace & self-care through a focus on the process over results.
