LifeCraft at Cath Kidston Marlow
In a break from the normal waffle about Dr Who, Bikes and Icons, I thought I would let UK readers with a love for the handmade know about LifeCraft.
Run by friends Layla, Leigh (that’s Mrs Hicks!) and Georgia in Oxford, Witney and Marlow, they offer contemporary creative workshops and short courses.
We believed we could make a difference to people’s lives through craft. It is, after all, good for the soul.
LifeCraft only launched last year, but they’re growing fast, and one of the many new courses on offer are special workshops at the Cath Kidston shop in Marlow, Buckinghamshire. Workshops start next week, and you can learn Lampshade Making (with fabric from the Cath Kidston shop) and Decorative Plate art.
Workshops cost a mere £20 to book (+ £10 on the day for Lampshade fabric) – see the LifeCraft website for full details. Please pass word around!

This awesome puppet of Matt Smith’s Doctor was made by New York based animator Alisa Stern, and he has his own Tumblr Blog to record his travels! I think she’s captured Matt’s Doctor brilliantly, which is even more obvious in the stop-motion test:
I’d love to see more characters in this style – maybe Aunty Beeb would hire Alisa to make some very special DVD extras?
