When it comes to giving on Mother’s Day, I’ve come to the conclusion that although flowers and chocolates are lovely, you can’t beat a shared experience – that’s why I love to welcome Mums and Daughters on my lampshade making workshops and mini lampshade making workshops.

There is something special about learning a new skill together, and taking your beautiful creation home to remind you of that special experience for years to come.

So I’ve reached out to other indie biz owners across the country who are offering fabulous craft workshops that would make the perfect Mother’s Day treat, from wire lettering and embroidery to leather book-binding and spring wreaths, hopefully there is the perfect craft workshop near you….
