Spring Workshops with studiOH! and GIVEAWAY!

Hello! As a special treat for all of our blog readers, we have a super nice giveaway this week, thanks to Eko and Anna of StudiOH! They've recently announced a bunch of great workshops for Spring, and they're giving one of you the chance to win a spot in their Rope Coil Basket workshop. How neat is that! To find out about the workshops and how to enter the giveaway, keep reading...

Hello! Here at studiOH! we've just announced our Spring Workshops series and we can’t wait to start getting crafty!

Our workshops this time include:

SCREEN PRINTING: make your own silk screen and use it to print pillowcases & tea towels
FISHBOWL TERRARIUMS: make a beautiful miniature green world to take home
ROPE COIL BASKETS: learn a modern take on the ancient art of rope coil basketry
POLYMER CLAY JEWELLERY: make your own polymer clay beads and turn them into beautiful jewellery 

Our workshops are a chance to have fun exploring your creative side while learning a new skill, to catch up with friends and make some new ones, and to bring home something new and beautiful. If you bring along two friends (or book yourself into a few workshops!), you can also get a discount of 10% (check out the multiple booking section online).

Our Spring Workshops are taking place on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd September 2013 in our latest pop-up space at the beautiful Kidogo Art Institute in Fremantle. All workshops will include a delicious coffee and a sweet treat from one of the excellent neighbouring cafes. 

You can find all the details of our Spring Workshops on our website, and bookings can be made through our online store.

As a special treat for Mr Sparrow blog readers, we’d love to offer a FREE SPOT in our Rope Coil Baskets workshop for one lucky reader! You’ll be taken step by step through the process of weaving a rope coil basket just like the ones we have stocked at Mr Sparrow, perfect for holding precious little items, fruit, sewing supplies or whatever takes your fancy! This workshop takes place on Sunday 22nd September from 10am-12pm and is normally $95.

To enter just leave a comment on this blog post. Good luck, and we look forward to seeing you at a workshop soon! Anna & Eko of studiOH!
