I can’t remember the last time I had a girls weekend away but this weekend I was blessed with spending two days with family and friends celebrating our lovely Samanthas 21st birthday.
As a group of like-minded girls aged from 21 to 80 you would have thought it would be hard to keep us all equally entertained but that couldn’t have been further from the truth.
Lisa, Samantha’s Mum quietly suggested to me she was considering pottery painting as an activity but was concerned that it would be what is it’s called a ‘busman‘s holiday’ for me in particular. I reassured her that it was something that I would absolutely love to do and in fact it would be the complete opposite and just a chance for me to unwind and do some crafting of my own.
Oh my goodness I couldn’t of enjoyed it more going into somebody else’s classroom being taught by somebody else and then coming away having made and created something of which I felt truly proud. No pressure to be perfect no pressure to be the professional just somebody happily painting. The other thing it did was invigorate me to actually make the most, in fact make something of the dormant kiln that I have at home.
I’m now determined that it’s going to be moved into the Highlight Crafts Academy and pottery painting will be one of the next classes that we add to our repertoire. If you’re like me and would like to just try something different, no pressure just absolute fun watch out for dates and register with Highlight Crafts for more details as we will be bringing you classes like the one I’ve just experienced in the very near future.
PS Each one of the nine of us made something for Samantha to have in her new home so not only is her new kitchen ware memorable and a reminder of this weekend but it is also personalised and full of fun and the personalities of the people who painted it. Perhaps you have a group of friends who may enjoy an experience like this at Highlight Crafts Academy.
