If there is one thing that I have most definitely come to terms with since running my own business it is that you never quite know who, or what, is around the corner.
A year ago or even 6 months ago I would never have dreamt that I would be appearing in DIY SOS. Last March when we opened the Studio at the Heritage Barn I would never have dreamt that in little over a year on we would be moving again, thankfully only a few metres. I've leanrt to expect the unexpected and keep flexible.
So I'm delighted, excited and proud to announce that from the 5th June 2017 we'll be running all our workshops from the Garden Studio at South Downs Nurseries in Hassocks. Very sadly, we are saying goodbye to our lovely workroom in Ditchling. Our fab new Garden Studio is huge, light and airy and the perfect setting for some relaxing crafting. It's big enough to hold two workshops side by side allowing friends with completely different interests to come together and enjoy a day out. It can take bigger groups for private sessions and has a canopied varandah which means we can contemplate some of the messier workshops too.
The Workroom at Ditchling holds a very special place in my heart and I am not ashamed to say that I felt a little teary as I pulled out the car park for the last time. I met many wonderful people for the very first time in that space, and my business has changed so much since we first arrived there back in September 2013. If you can remember our Open Evening on Friday 5th September a huge thank you for staying with us all this time. Your support is much appreciated.
Onwards and upwards though and a chance to provide better surroundings, warmer toilets and light and airy space to pursue a hobby in.
With the major move now behind us we'll be focusing on the workshops again and putting our finishing touches to the High Summer and Autumn schedules, filling in the gaps. There will be plenty of Childrens Workshops during the summer holidays and new adult sessions throughout. Stay tuned and we'll try to keep you up to date, meanwhile bear with us whilst we get the website up to speed too.
