Craft Ideas with Textiles
The use of textiles plays an important part in all our the crafting projects we do at Colouricious. We have decorated textiles with patterns and designs since the beginning of time and in essence the methods we use today have changed very little from how they were first done.
Colouricious has lots of creative ideas on how to use textiles in your crafting projects and we have multiple videos and guides to show you exactly how to make each project. You can watch a number of the videos showing how you can make anything from paper from your old jeans to felt flowers on our Craft Ideas with Textiles page on our website.
Colouricious is so passionate about textiles and textile art that we have a range of DVDs covering lots of different textile techniques and skills. The DVDs will help you to learn and understand how to start creating your own projects. Each one is broken into easy to follow indexed chapters that you can watch and re-watch at your leisure. If you are just starting off in Textile Crafting then we have each DVD individually on sale on our website.
Last Call for Jaipur!
We have 3 spaces left on our wonderful trip to Jaipur that leaves in 11 days! If you take spur of the moment decisions or would like to give yourself an early Christmas present, or perhaps you have a crafting friend or relation that you would just like to treat, then get in contact with us straightaway and reserve one of these last three spaces.
The trip to Jaipur is probably one of our most popular holidays to India, as it gives everybody on the trip the opportunity to get involved in a number of different block printing groups and workshops. This is the essence of what Colouricious is about and is why I enjoy this holiday so much. I am sure that we are all going to have a great time on the trip, so if you want to grab a last minute ticket to join us then we would love to hear from you. You will not be disappointed.
