Jubilee Craft Event - Dock Street Market

Good afternoon,

I hope you're all enjoying the Jubilee weekend so far, here in Leeds, the weather has turned out to be a bit damp, I feel sorry for everyone that had street  and garden parties and barbecues organised!

I thought I'd share what I will be up to for the Bank Holiday.  I'm taking part in Jubileeds, an event at Dock Street Market, Leeds.  This is where I hold my monthly card classes.  I was approached at the last class, where I was making Jubilee themed cards, to come along to their event this weekend to host a crafty workshop.  I jumped at the chance, and have been looking forward to it since then.

I'll be bring supplies and equipment to make all the projects below.  There will be the four Jubilee themed cards, perfect for any occasion.

The four cards that can be made

These are a couple of projects that are a little less ambitious than some of the cards, and will be perfect for children (or adults that are big kids!).  There's plenty of bunting and flags everywhere at the moment, so you could make your own.  If you don't fancy that, come and make a pinwheel.

Flags and pinwheels
I hope to see as many of you as I can there, drop in and say hi if you're nearby.  There's loads of other stuff on too, for more information and times etc, see here.  Enjoy the rest of the long weekend.


  1. Alex, these projects are wonderful! I'm from the Peak District but have been living in Michigan, US for 11 years now and am feeling VERY homesick this weekend. I love your blog post, the projects are amazing ... thank you for making me feel nostalgic. Hope Leeds goes well for you this w/end. Hugs, Emma x
