Winter Workshops 2014

I am, by nature, a curious soul. I like to know the story behind a product.
Where it is made, how it is made and what inspired the design.
Tracy Lefroy, Owner & Curator

Time: Guest are welcome from 8am – Workshops commence at 8:30am 
Where: Cranmore Park, 631 Cranmore Road, Bindi Bindi (see attached map)

Included: Two workshops (morning and afternoon), a 'sparkling' morning and afternoon tea and a three-course long table lunch paired with wines.

The idea of Cranmore Home’s inaugural Winter Workshop began to take root over a coffee with Bec at our Beermullah Event back in December last year. It was 40 degrees plus, we were hot, dirty and tired… what better time to start planning the next event? Bec and I were happily surprised that our customers at our Pop-Up Events were as curious about the back-story of our products as we were. The logical (ahem) progression from this was ‘well let’s introduce them to each other then’.

Enter the artisans behind the brands at Cranmore Home who have eagerly jumped at the chance to come up to the farm and share their skills in a day of Winter Workshops. The Workshops on offer are intimate and developed for a range of skill levels. Each of our workshop participants will take home a piece with which to decorate their home. All Workshops will be capped at 15 participants. This small group size will allow for individual attention from our Artisan Educators. Each Winter Workshop participant will take part in two Workshops of their choice and be treated to a sumptuous three-course lunch with matched wines.

Cranmore Home is all about Australian design, all about artisan products and all about creating a home through layers of memories, textures and materials. Oddly enough for a retailer, I think that a home should be built over time, not ‘out of a box’ but rather a collection of items that have meaning and significance. Making your own pieces for your home, be it an unstructured collection of foliage and flowers, blending a scent for your own body lotion, or even knocking together some reclaimed timber to make your very own stool, means your home has a character that reflects yours.

Cranmore Home's best decorating tip: let it take time. Only fill your home with things that mean something to you and make you happy. The adage ‘if you truly love it, it will never go out of fashion’ holds true for homewares. Come along to our Winter Workshops to create a special piece for your home.
