Make your own Christmas Tree Decoration - Take some important time out for yourself with this creatively nourishing mini Christmas Craft Workshop

MADEby TamaliaWhat to Expect

With such busy lifestyles we often forget to make time for our personal passions, hobbies and interests. Or we don’t feel like we have the energy to try something new, learn a new skill or open our minds to a new concept. Taking some time out of our busy schedules is incredibly important for our wellbeing to help us remain grounded, and replenish our energy levels so we can be the best version of ourselves and for those we love around us.

Whatever your creative ability - whether you consider it as a novice, a dabbler or an enthusiast, why not come along and take 20 minutes for yourself at the MADEbyTamalia contemporary Christmas Craft Workshop.

Allowing yourself time to be creative has been scientifically proven to help with mental health. It gives you purpose. It allows you to express yourself in a non-conformist way. It opens your mind to new ideas. It connects people, whilst also allowing time for self-reflection.

At this mini workshop you will make a beautiful ‘on trend’ handmade Christmas tree decoration using a non-toxic gypsum based resin. All the materials and instruction will be provided.

So why not unleash your inner artist and come and try out our taster workshop.

“Creativity is not just for artists. It’s for business people looking for a new way to close a sale; it’s for engineers trying to solve a problem; it’s for parents who want their children to see the world in more than one way.” Twyla Tharp

About Tamalia & the MADEbyTamalia Studio

Since leaving University I had worked as a Primary School Teacher and a Graphic Designer - but I was never truly happy. I crammed as much crafting, art and DIY makes into my evenings and weekends but it never felt enough. Slowly as life started to get in the way, my passions started to be put aside for another day. After facing an incredibly difficult time in my life I turned to my Yoga to help me find balance, calm and inspiration. Freshly armed with the realisation that I wanted to live a more creative, mindful life I decided to create MADEbyTamalia - A colourful, warm and welcoming space, where others could escape the rat race and indulge in some well deserved creative ’me time.’

MADEbyTamalia is very much a creative space but that doesn’t mean it just for ‘creative’ types. It is about bringing community together. About reconnecting with people, whilst doing something holistic that’s beneficial to your wellbeing, as well as well as helping you learn a new skill.

At MADEbyTamalia we like variety so our seasonal calendar offers a range of crafts that change throughout the year, catering to all abilities. We are an inclusive studio so everyone is welcome to come and get your craft on!

As well as our regular workshops we also cater for special events such as birthday parties, hen parties, baby showers and more. Plus our corporate workshops offer something a little bit different to do as part of a team building session or even as regular offering to integrate into your company’s Workplace Wellness Programme.

There is absolutely no fuss, we provide everything you need, so you can just bring your lovely self, make, have fun, chat and leave with a fabulous unique finished piece MADEbyYOU in just a few hours.

Our workshops don’t cost the earth. In fact you’ll pay more for a ‘night out’ or sometimes even a ‘night in’ Hahaha. However we have to cover our costs and we want to provide you with the best creative experience too.

So…what are you going to make?
