Wentworth Woodhouse staging Hallowe’en treats for crafty types

8th October 2019

Hallowe’en treats are in store for nimble-fingered visitors to stately home Wentworth Woodhouse in Rotherham.

Vintage diva Gemma Nemer is Artist In Residence for the heritage, culture and arts project Wentworth & Elsecar Great Place.

Known to many from her Button Tin craft events in Rotherham and Elsecar, she will be staging an Alternative Wreath Making class on Wednesday October 30.

Each ethical autumnal piece will be made from recycled fabrics, paper and vintage materials.

Rummage through Scandinavian-style original braids and ribbons, vivid vintage fabrics and trims, then learn a variety of paper, felt and fabric decoration-making techniques to create a quirky everlasting wreath in her full day workshop (price: £55). Afterwards, class members can enjoy a discounted afternoon tea for £15.

On Hallowe’en (Oct 31), crafters can learn how to make their own, cute-as-a-button everlasting pumpkins from pure wool.

Amy Winterbottom, of Tickle Mouse Crafts, has a BA in fashion design and a passion for the arts of wet-felting and needle-felting. Her three-hour courses start at 10am and 2pm and cost £30.
