Getting Crafty with Crave for Crafts

If you’ve made a New Year’s resolution to get more creative and YouTube has left you with some disappointing projects, Crave for Crafts is a fantastic way to achieve your goal. 

Run by a group of friendly and skilled women, CFC’s workshops range from macramé to watercolour and are a great excuse for visiting some of Brisbane’s most trendy venues. 

To celebrate Mothers Day, skilled collaborators Ana and Imogen held a Paper Flowers Workshop at hip Stones Corner hangout Shady Palms, where a group of curious locals learnt how to make a one-of-a-kind bouquet for mum.

A few pieces of paper, some florists’ tape, a small wad of cotton wool and some wire – that’s all the talented two need to make some seriously stunning blooms. 

Allowing the aspiring creatives the rare chance to work with specially imported paper from the USA, Ana and Imogen led the class in an afternoon that was both chilled and productive – a feat not everyone can claim to achieve on a Saturday afternoon. 

Much like the flowers created, the group’s talents blossomed whilst stories of failed craft projects, creative successes and life in general were swapped. 

An exciting afternoon that seemed to fly by, the Paper Flowers Workshop was only one example of CFC’s array of fun-filled, hands-on workshops.

Whether you want to find a relaxing activity or create something that will make your Instagram followers jealous – we know deep down you do – Crave For Craft’s collaborators are happy to help. 

Run publically across Brisbane and also available for private functions, CFC’s workshops are brilliant for hens nights, birthdays, baby showers or even as a mother-daughter bonding session for Mothers Day.
