Discovering The Makery in Bath
I took the girls to beautiful Bath today for a change of scenery and look what we discovered - The Makery Emporium. E loved the colourful window display and inside was a treasure trove of ribbons, buttons, fabrics and all sorts of whimsy displayed on vintage cake stands and tea-cups. My idea of heaven! I spoke to the owner Kate Smith and it's an off-shoot of The Makery which offers workshops including making lip balm, crochet, embroidery and upholstery. There are also children's workshops (age 6+) such as biscuit decorating and sewing machine lessons. Visiting shops like this, built on the passion and enthusiasm of their owners is such a joy. I have my eye on a knicker-making workshop next month and if my efforts end up wonky, well, at least no-one will ever know.
