This year I have discovered a love of teaching. Passing on my knowledge has been an incredibly positive part of this new journey I have been on.
As I'm sure you are all aware, we will be having a little bundle of joy in March. This is something which I have been waiting for all my life; to be a Mum. I cannot wait for the challenges that wait for me.
However, I also ADORE my creative life, and get a cold sweat when someone asks me whether I will give up work. Although my bespoke work might be reduced next year due to Pip, I want to be able to grow Vintage Magpie throughout this time, to create a fantastic business that will work around Pip, So I can fulfill my dreams of being a creative working Mum.
So this got me thinking whether to offer some lovely VM workshops...
I honestly do not know whether this something you; my gorgeous readers, would be interested in?
So this is me dipping my toe in the water...
...please feel free to let me know what you think!!
Firstly I would be looking to hold a 'DIY Bridal Course' where you will learn how to make a silk fabric Rose Bouquet. All the materials will be included, just bring along some of your treasured vintage items to work into the bouquet. This would be a Day course. The cost of this course would need to be confirmed, but around £200 with lunch & wine included.
This would be happening around May/June 2012. It would only be open for a small amount of people, So if you would be interested please either comment on this post or email me at;
The second course will be 'The Vintage Magpie Masterclass' an intensive 2 day course designed for the professional, who either would like to set up their own business or add a string to their bow and offer an extra service to their existing business.
It would give you a complete over view into the process of making an Heirloom bouquet...from the first crystal wired to binding off the bouquet.
A kit will be included, all you need to bring is some lovely Vintage Sparklers, a note pad & your happy face!
I stress the word INTENSIVE for this course! It will be a challenge but well worth it.
Again the cost will need to be confirmed, but around £850 Lunch & wine included on both days, Plus endless tea & coffee!!
This would be happening around July/August 2012. It would only be open for a small amount of people, So if you would be interested please either comment on this post or email me at;
I am open to your ideas & your thoughts.
Growing Vintage Magpie continues to be my dream, I cannot wait to share my world with you. My aim is pass on my knowledge in a fun and exciting way. To help others who want to lead a creative life.
Will you be a Vintage Magpie Master?
