Changes at Crafted Spaces
Happy New Year! I hope that the start of the New Year has been great for you guys. It has been super busy at Crafted Spaces and we are very excited about the year ahead. As you know we moved into our new studio at the end of last summer and officially opened the doors in September. Since opening our focus has been on making our classes run seamlessly, and providing a broader selection of classes. So far the transition has been great and there are lots planned for the coming year. Most of our classes are held at our new creative workspace, however in the spring and summer we will be hosting a select number of classes at the home studio. Class sizes are still being kept small and there is lots of space for everyone.
We have changed our studio hours and have posted the new hours on the side bar of the blog. The new hours are also listed on our Facebook page and will be updated on all other locations that they are currently listed. The start of the year has been really busy, so we have had a few irregular days which we hope has not of any great inconvenience to visitors. If we missed your visit, please accept our apologies. Every attempt is made to have the doors open during the listed times however if there is a change we will post on our Facebook wall, which you can access even without a Facebook account. If you will like to ensure that someone is present for your visit, we are pleased to schedule an appointment.
New Classes and Guest Instructors
There are several new classes being offered this year. Most of the classes are being taught by myself; however, a guest instructor will teach some of the classes. If you will like any additional information about our guest instructors, please contact us for more details. If you are interested in teaching a class just let us know. We are open to new classes and welcome guest instructors.
At the end of last year we introduced our knitting classes and now have available several fun knitting classes for you to try. Our knitting instructor is Janet Westall and she brings with her many years of knitting experience. Our knitting classes include; knitting basics, beginner knitting, arm knitting and sock knitting. If you are interested in attending any of these classes visit our online registration page or contact us for more information.
We are working on a new website. We hope to have the new site lunched for spring and I am personally excited about the new look and functionality of the site. We hope that the new website will deliver an improved customer experience and will be a great platform for Crafted Spaces. We will introduce several new classes focused on Jewellery Making, Paper Crafts, DIY Weddings and the development of Your Creative Business.
Some of the other things we are working on includes; relaunching Crafted Spaces Radio, providing a broader selection of creative books, craft supplies, sewing kits and a larger selection of handmade gift items. We are also introducing some new products that will be available exclusively at Crafted Spaces.
If you are a designer, crafter, maker or artist and you will like to include your work for sale at our studio, please contact us. Also, if you will like to submit a proposal for a new class or a short series, please provide details about yourself and the proposed class. This year we are also expanding our blog post and will like to share more profiles, so send us your information for an opportunity to be featured on our Crafted Spaces blog.
We will also like to hear from you. What do you like about our classes, blog or social media post? What will you like to see us do more of? Are there any classes you will like us to include in our schedule? We look forward to receiving your commends and suggestions.
