What Does 2021 Hold For Crafty?
We have a big vision this year to bring new and exciting projects to Trisha’s Crafty Studio. We are introducing social clubs and new workshops to our calendar. Below you will find the full list of inspirational ideas coming to Trisha’s Crafty Studio in 2021.
What is a Workshop?
Workshops are structured classes with allocated teachers to show you how to make the designed project.
Everyone who attends will recieve a set kit to complete the class.
Classes will include:
- Card Making
- Mixed Media
Below is a list of all of the different workshops coming to Trisha’s Crafty Studio in 2021.
Do you need to get those photos into your album?
Join us in helping you create beautiful layouts with our class kits (includes all of the materials you will need except for photos, tools, and adhesives).
There will be single layouts and double layouts available during the weekday, plus we are now offereing some night and weekend classes starting in February.
The teachers have tried very hard to make the classes flexible for your photo styles and we have colour scheme options available with some kits.
Remember the classes are inspiration and we are more than happy for you to change, add or remove photos or elements.
You need to create the layout that works for your album.
Card Making Classes
Take some time out for yourself and enjoy creating a card or two with fellow crafters in our air-conditioned workshop.
Card classes are offered during the week and weeknights.
The Crafty Team love designing cards and teaching others their passion.
From simple to elegant designs to more intricate folded cards, we try to offer a wide selection to showcase the endless possibilities of card making.
The kits for these classes will be supplied, you will only need your basic tool kit to enjoy the class.
TLC Mixed Media Projects and Gifts
TLC Mixed Media Projects incorporate a lot of inspiration for you to give that special someone a handmade gift from the heart.
It is not just a craft class, but some creative time to make something special to treasure those captured memories you have shared with your family or friends.
Projects will include:
- Brag Books
- Home Decorations
- Gift Bags
Just to name a few.
These projects will allow you to learn and create, not just on a scrapbook page or card, but memorable and fun ideas.

What is a Crafty Social Club?
Crafty Social Clubs are designed for you to get out of the house and enjoy the company of others.
These are scheduled throughout the calendar for you to attend and enjoy different crafts with fellow crafters who share the same interests as you.
There will be no set kits to purchase as we encourage you to create with your stash from home.
There will be a list of basic aupplies that you might need for the social clubs, but mostly everyone should have these already in your craft stash.
You will have a teacher who is passionate about the style of craft at that allocated social club.
The teacher will be there to help guide you and show you how they create their projects alongside you.
Everyone is welcome, even if you are a new crafter, just come along and see if this style of craft is for you.
We will also have selected tools and materials for you to be able to use during these social clubs.
Coffee, Cake and Create Days
We are finally starting up our Crafty Social Club days at the studio.
The social clubs are designed for you to be able to pop in, sit down and create with teachers on hand to help you with your projects that you have been working on or didn’t get the time to finish.
These social club days will run from 9:30am to 3:00pm on selected days.
The cost of the Coffee, Cake and Create days is $10 per person and includes a beverage and a slice of cake.
Our E.P.I.C. Ipswich cafe has barista made tea, coffee and hot chocolate with an array of milk including:
- Lactose Free
- Full Cream
We have a wide selection of juices and soft drinks for if you don’t feel like a hot beverage.
We make our own in-house cakes, muffins and slices.
Artful Journals Social Club with Trish
The new year will bring a social club that will be an open style workshop hosted by Trish, that will showcase the endless possibilities of Art Journaling.
As you may already know, Trish is passionate about Art Journaling (or visual art diaries, as it was known in the good old days).
Trish may not scrapbook, but she does love playing and creating will all types of art materials and substrates.
So bring along your journals and enjoy the social interaction with like-minded crafters and Trish while going down this creative journey into Art Journaling.
The Artful Journal Social Club is designed to give you time to play and create freely with no limitations except your own imagination.
Trish will be creating in her journals alongside you and showcasing different techniques and products that she uses in her own diaries.
You will be able to play with some of her products to learn how they work and see if it will suit your own creativity.
There will be no set designed page to create, as your Art Journal page is all about the moment and style you personally want to create.
Trish will have her journals available for inspiration and she can teach you the things you wish to learn about.
We will have a large selection of stencils and stamps on offer for you to create with (everyone knows how many stamps Trish has collected over the years).
If you are completely new to Art Journaling, don’t panic, as you are welcome to come along and see what it’s all about first.
Trish will show you how to start an Art Journal.
You don’t need anything flashy to start, a piece of mixed media paper is a great place to start.
You can use almost any book as a foundation for your art journal, including:
- Exercise Books
- Old Recipe Books
- Visual Art Diaries
- Art Journals
So just bring them along and enjoy the journey.
There is no right or wrong with art journaling, all you need is some time, a piece of paper and basic supplies.
Flower Power Social Club
Do you have lots of paper scraps lying around that you don’t want to waste? Turn them into flowers!
Join us for this social group and we will show you how to create flowers from your scraps and our dies.
This social club is perfect for some time out to just sit down and create some flowers to match your projects (and help save the environment).
Check out the selected dates and times on the Workshop Calendar.
Come along to our Crop Days to take a day off just to craft.
Join us every 3rd Saturday of the month from 9:00am to 4:00pm to spend some time with fellow crafters in air-conditioning.
Everyone will have their own large table with power available if you need it.
Included in the price is two drink vouchers to use at our E.P.I.C. Ipswich cafe and a light plated lunch all for $20.
