home: event [ brush lettering workshop ]

Start the new year with a lovely workshop from the guys at The London Craft Club.

‘Join us for a wonderful evening of brush lettering with Shoshana of Shoshy Cadoodle. Gently learn the techniques to create natural, flowing letters with Shoshy’s help and guidance. You’ll try different drills to get the hand of the letters and brush, with lots of top tips on how to make your words look nicer. Create your own phrases, or use some of Shoshy’s lovely examples to guide you. When you’re happy with the end result, you’ve got the option to turn one of your pieces into a framed piece of art for your home’

Other countries have huge influences on us and our home, and this year we have been introduced to a few. First we learnt of the Danish Hygge & Lykke, now we have Wabi Sabi – the Japanese way of thinking about our lives and homes and making them imperfect…in a good way.

‘Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes’

There is so much presure to make our homes the best they can be, whether it’s clean lines, perfectly arranged bookshelves or neatly placed cushions. Whatever habits we have Wabi Sabi teaches us to let go a bit and feel more content.

Wabi Sabi is about mis-matched furniture, wonky vases, worn wood floors and naturally textured accessories. Less shiny and new, more used and imperfect. There is no wrong or right way to indroduce the principles of Wabi Sabi, it’s more about appreciating what we have, and if we need those new things then perhaps opt for handmade or used items.

Whether it’s a simple adding of wheels or legs to a crate or wooden box, or a higher level of diy creativity; creating a piece of furniture like a bedside table is rewarding and unique for your home.

We found WooHome and Homestetics are both super creative sites offering a plethora of bedside table projects to give you a great choice of projects for your home.

There’s suitcases on legs, single vintage drawers floating on walls and even ledges hung on heavy weight rope from the ceiling. There’s modern looks, vintage and retro styles and cool industrial designs. There’s projects for all abilities and budgets.
