Easter Craft Fair

Come along to the Marhamchurch Craft Fair 

Easter weekend. Friday to Sunday.

 3rd, 4th & 5th April

Demonstrations each day show casing the Folk It kits. 

Plus lots of other hand painted projects 

to tempt the money out of your purse.

The Folk It kits are perfect for Beginners.

Series No 1 

It all starts HERE with the Starter kit.  

You will love this kit, so many options to practice 

and then choose which design you 

want to paint on your projects.

Five more sets make up this series.

Level 2

 Daisies and/or Bluebirds

Comma Strokes, now these do need lots of practice. 

 These kits are smaller, using the products from your Starter Kit which includes the brushes.


Each kit include the mdf heart, card kit, 

step by step booklet and a DVD


And if you get stuck 

and can't quite get the hang of it 

then maybe a lesson or two in my studio will set you back on the right road? 


Level 3

Angels and/or Roses

Slightly more difficult, practice still needed.

Repetition strokework is the key that unlocks 

 the door to so many other designs.

These also include the heart, card kit, 

step by step booklet and DVD.

And back up help with me if needed?




Linerwork creating lace effect with little hearts and off course lots of dots.


This design show cases that even experienced painters/teachers 

do not paint perfectly and thats OK too. 

Hand Painted is not perfectly produced by a line precision machine.


Folk It on Facebook 

take a look and see what everyone is painting, 
lots of inspiration for everyone.

I look forward to seeing you all at Marhamchurch next week.
