Rattle drums, dragon puppets, felt flowers and pirate accessories... Half term Craftiness.

We got up to a fair bit of craftiness over half term last week, here are a few pictures of our makes. The week started with two days of Chinese New Year inspired Crafty Kwak's classes. On Monday I held a Year of the goat, rattle drum making class in Southfields and Tuesday saw a Dragon puppet workshop over at Gambado in Chelsea.  

Rattle drums:

A busy day with lots of clever crafters creating rattle drums. The tutorial for the drum can be found over on the website, under the 'Crafty Kwak's' tab.

It looks a little like this:

Chinese Dragons:

The day was bananas and I totally forgot to take pictures, eek, so above is just a couple I snapped before and after.


This months goody bags held a crafty little Chinese lantern gift pack to take home and make, I have already heard back from a few parents saying the children really enjoyed them... Hoorah. The lantern tutorial can be found on the website under 'Crafty Kwak's' should you fancy a dabble.


I made a little felt rose for the Mr for Valentines day... Tutorial can again be found on the website, under the 'Crafty Kwak's' tab... check it out.

Pirate fan:

And It's currently all about the pirates in our house so the little lady and myself whipped up a quick felt pirate hat... she made most of this, she's very clever. And that is her most bestest pirate face... Needs a little work. Tutorial will be available soon.


And to go with the hat, a pirate must of course have an authentic pirate treasure map. She loved making these, all her own work, apart from the burnt edges. The map is tucked into her belt in the pic above, alongside a very wonky sword. I am pretty sure a sword will be next on the list of pirate makes.


And that was about it, we are all back to school/ work today... time to start planning the Easter class.
