Brightly lit and spacious.

Each spot featuring a 1.8m long table, an A3-size craft mat with a sheet of A4 scratch paper. A small waste bin is also provided at each spot and chairs have armrests and cushions for extra comfort. Easy listening music is piped through wall-mounted speakers and reverse-cycle air-conditioning adds to the pleasant ambience. There's also a wall-mounted tv screen to display images for project reference. All the messy stuff takes place at standing height benches with dedicated areas for ink blending, heat setting, stamping, die cutting and/or embossing.

Currently, for that extra crafting pleasure there's only 4 crafters at any session while we practice social distancing. This means loads of room to spread out while creating.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to an event to give you time to arrive and get settled, to have a chat and/or read any instructions before the workshop starts. Please be on time, thank you. Paper & Crafty Workshop Space
