A Craft Evening on How to Use Patterned Rollers

Patterned rollers are a quick and easy method of adding pattern to fabric, walls, furniture or paper. At Thomas & Lucia, we have used them to print wrapping paper, create lampshades, decorate bags, embellish furniture, doors and walls. These rollers are much quicker to use than stencils or stamps and within a couple of hours you can roller an entire wall to give the effect of hand printed wallpaper.

Although using the rollers is quick, without a guiding hand the prospect can seem a little daunting. That’s why we have created this special evening to get together with a few friends or meet new ones and have a go with this fun creative tool - with the help of expert tuition! During the evening, we will make sheets of wrapping paper and print your own bag to take home.

A Craft Evening on the Essentials of Gilding

Metal leaf is much easier and more economical to use than you might think and you can gild almost anything. One can gild things like trays, furniture, mirrors, boxes and lamps or for a bit of fun a whole bath or even a pumpkin!

We provide expert tuition so that during the evening you learn how to use loose leaf, transfer leaf, gold size and Annie’s new gilding waxes. You will practice on a votive, a photoframe and anything else we may have around!
