Shells and Sweets: New Blog Tutorials

To continue with our celebration of summer, we are challenging you with two new bright crafting activities this week. The materials for both of these activities have been made up into collection craft packs. These can be picked up from Gallery 966 during our collection hours - see our schedule for more details.

Some of you may have taken part in Vanessa's online shell decorating class on Tuesday. Our first tutorial expands on this theme by offering four different crafting ideas for incorporating shells into item upcycling.

If it is safe to do so, it may also be worth a trip to the beach to collect your shells.

If you feel inspired to make a bright and tasty gift for someone, why not try our second tutorial for the week: Sweet Bouquets. These are fun to put together and look wonderful when wrapped up like a wee flower bouquet. Try mixing up patterns and colours for different 'flower' styles.

The challenge is to resist eating the sweets as you assemble the bouquet!

As usual, please consider sending us a photo of anything you make at home. It is always lovely to see how you have interpreted the activity.
