We are super excited to announce that we will be hosting our first ever art & craft weekend at our Milton Keynes store. If you are an arts or crafts fan, this is the perfect weekend for you. To make it better, it is absolutely FREE for everyone! 

The event will take place on Saturday 23rd from 10 am to 4 pm and Sunday 24th June at 11 am to 3 pm. Throughout the weekend, we will have the talented artist Sara Captain and crafter Zoe Hope joining us. 

If you prefer art over crafts or vice versa, don't worry. Both Saturday and Sunday will have two workshops, one for art and one craft. 
Art on Saturday 23rd June

During this fun and interactive session, Sara will take you through top techniques using a wide selection of products from the Spectrum Noir range. Learn how to master marker and pencil techniques. Some of the products that will be demonstrated are: Graphic and Illustrator Alcohol Markers and Colourblend, Aquablend, Colourtint and Metallic Pencils. 

Art on Sunday 24th June

If you attend on Saturday, you will be a master on Alcohol Markers and Pencils. Sunday's Art workshop is all about water-based brush pens. Like Saturday, you will have the opportunity to learn amazing techniques and test the products. At the end of the session, you will be given the opportunity to have a one-to-one Q&A with our talented artist. We will be focusing on some of these products: 

  • Metallic Markers
  • Sparkle Pens 
  • Aqua Tints 
  • Art Liners 


Craft on Saturday 23rd and 24th June

On both day's, we will be holding make and take workshops. The talented Zoe Hope will demonstrate how to create your own cards using the Gemini Die Cutting Machine and Sara Rustic Wedding Range. Once Zoe has taken you through the steps, you will be given the opportunity to finish creating your own card to take home. 

If the above doesn't entice you, this will. Not only will you be having a fun-filled day, there will be a complementary lunch for everyone. 

Come and join us for a fabulous weekend and for the chance to WIN amazing prizes. 

We look forward to seeing you there!  



Hello. This weekend sounds great. Please could someone tell me if there is a specific age aloud to join in.
