There is a basic human urge to be creative and to physically make something. Modern life often forces us away from learning these kinds of skills, but this break is all about expressing your inner creativeness and imagination. Perfect for anyone looking to spend some time away amongst stunning surroundings of the Warwickshire countryside, while learning new techniques in Felting and Decoupage, this is more than just a craft course. Escape the hustle and bustle of life for a relaxing weekend with family and friends, while learning new craft skills from an experienced tutor. Grab this opportunity to make something special and bring it home with you at the end of the weekend.
The Ettington Chase Hotel is our base for our break away. Set in 11 acres of landscaped grounds, this stunning hotel has a swimming pool, sauna and gym.
Day One – This morning we leave home and head for our hotel, the elegant country house of Ettington Chase, with comfort stops on the way. We arrive in plenty of time for our evening meal.
Day Two – After breakfast, enjoy a day of crafting, with your professional tutors. This morning will be spent learning the eye-catching technique of Decoupage of a keepsake box frame. (These can be made with your own photographs or materials if you choose to bring some, or materials that are supplied and included in the cost of the holiday). After a break for lunch, the afternoon will be spent learning the process called “Wet Felting”. Tea and coffee breaks will be supplied throughout the day for your comfort. You will then have time to freshen up before our evening meal.
Day Three – It is time to leave the Ettington Chase Hotel, and head home, craft in hand.
