Course overview

Come and join a friendly and supportive group of crafters, along with our enthusiastic tutor, as you work your way through the alphabet of fancy fold and other card designs. From A to Z we will visit different style and folds for each letter of the alphabet, from now until July 2024, in 3 manageable chunks. This course is aimed at card makers wishing to build up their existing skills as certain tools and equipment will be required, such as good quality card stock, score board or score tool and ruler, craft knife and cutting mat, assorted sentiments and embellishments.

Course description

Discover the wonderful, rewarding world of card making with a bunch of like minded and enthusiastic fellow crafters. If you didn’t attend part one please don’t worry, as long as you have the supplies you can happily enrol for this one term or maybe you will be inspired and also join part three!

On this fulfilling creative course we will be working on building up our craft skills, for example:

• accurate measuring and cutting of card and patterned papers

• Scoring and folding card correctly

• Making your own embellishments

• Cutting with a craft knife

Once you have completed part two, you can progress and join part three for even more inspiration and ideas to use in your card making. Or maybe you would like to try something different, then what about ‘Delving into Decoupage’, ‘Calming Collage’ or ‘Custom Cards for Commercial Gain’. Later in the year we also have ‘Easter Cards and Crafts’ and if you are feeling very adventurous why not try ‘Diorama and Pop-Up Cards’?
