Live Workshops


Sadly, the current Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc across the United Kingdom (indeed the world) and, like the majority of events businesses, we have had to postpone or cancel a lot of planned courses, workshops and weekend retreats until it's clear that life can return to something like the normalcy we all once enjoyed.


On this page you'll find details of planned courses for 2020, assuming the UK Government releases the social distancing measures to allow small groups of people to once again meet in closed spaces. Where possible we are postponing courses/workshops/retreats until later this year; where this is not deemed practical we have cancelled courses/workshops/retreats with a view to re-booking venues in 2021 once everyone is up & running again and we are able to confidently make forward plans.

We trust this keeps you appraised of the current situation regards all CraftyMonkies courses, workshops and weekend retreats, but if you have any queries at all please contact us via email:-

Before the Coronavirus outbreak, we had so many wonderful Papercrafting and Mixed Media events in the pipeline, we could hardly contain our excitement! We have some of the best teachers/artists & experts in their field lined up to teach you but sadly, our first Papercrafting/Mixed Media event planned for Millennium Point in Birmingham on Saturday 30th & Sunday 31st May 2020 has had to be CANCELLED, but please keep an eye on our website and social media feeds for positive news as & when we have it in the near future!...​

Papercrafting Masterclass

On Saturday and Sunday the lovely Leonie will be getting you messy - the very BEST kind of crafting!!!
First you will work with Powertex and rice paper to decorate a lovely bag for your crafty life. Of course these skills can then be used on a multitude of other projects in the future. You will then play with lots of colour and layers, using Leonie’s stamps and stencils - which we will then frame so you have your very own unique art piece! 


All materials will be included - so all you need to bring with you is your dirty tea towel - ooh, and please don’t wear your best frock!?!

Lou Withers - Saturday 30th May + Sunday 31st May 2020

Journaling Masterclass 

On Saturday and Sunday the wonderful Lou Withers will help you create a fabulous Journal from scratch, using a brand new collection she has designed for the fantastic company Studio Light. The collection of dies, stamps and papers are very new, only launching on Hochanda TV on the 12th February 2020! Journals are becoming incredibly popular; they’re a great a place for you to write your thoughts and make a record of your personal events throughout the year to cherish for a lifetime. They can seem daunting to make, just where do you start? They aren’t when Lou is around to guide you through the process. She will teach you techniques that will last forever, and you’ll have so much fun! You’ll only need some essentials: a basic kit of glue, paintbrushes, cutting mat, brayer and any of your favourite stamps, but we will provide the rest and we're confident you’ll walk away with a unique journal to be proud of!...
