Day 2

Hello again, Meghan here. Another great day at Welcome Home - today we organised a new free craft demo that I'll be running for all of you, so come down this Saturday 2nd July to learn how to make a floral textile brooch at U P M A R K E T and enjoy the rest of the craft stalls and BBQ.

There are so many great things down here at Welcome Home, so hard to choose just one but here it goes:

Product of the Day: Hello Tiger Blue Mirror

An essential in any handbag or pocket, this delightfully humourous mirror is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and certainly charms me. Designed by ├ůsa Wikman and at just £4, what a treat!

Hope to see you all this Saturday and Sunday!

Introducing Meghan!

We have a new intern here at Welcome Home, Meghan will be joining us for the next couple of weeks and sharing her experience with you all here. I'll hand over to her now...

Hello everyone, I am very excited to tell you that I’m the new intern at Welcome Home, situated at CCA. We are already getting stuck in with a brand new window display of treats, so if you fancy popping in for a chat and looksie, do!

There are so many delightful things here at Welcome Home so I thought I’d highlight a few special pieces over the course of this week.

Product of the Day: Garudio Studiage Flat Pets

Have all the perks of owning a pet without the messy downsides! I adore this little screen printed puppy - who wouldn’t want to wake up to his wee cute face? So far, I can confirm he is very well behaved and obedient, he has really mastered the command: Stay! This eco-friendly pup has been printed and die cut on an A4 sheet of recycled grey board and is available at Welcome Home online or in the CCA at just £10.00.

Later this week we are hoping to introduce a brand new workshop and I’m really looking forward to UPMARKET this Sat and Sun at the CCA Terrace Bar with Aye Aye Books, so stay tuned!

demo and workshop

Sunday 19th June is the last day of the 234D exhibition at Welcome Home and to mark the occasion we've got a special workshop and demonstration taking place from 12-4pm. Join us to try out some amazing new software developed for 3D design by Anarkik3D with Ann Marie Shillito:

You just have to try Cloud9 3D sketch/modelling ‘haptic’ software as it can’t be described adequately. If you don't know what ‘haptics’ is, it's the astonishing ability to "touch" virtual objects.

Can you imagine the ease with which you could manipulate complex designs with a real sense of 3D touch instead of awkward menus and control interfaces? Haptics makes for a better interface for designing digitally in 3D.

If you are a designer, a maker, an applied artists and freaked by 3D CAD (even Rhino and sketch-up) this is for you. Anarkik3D designed and built Cloud9 for designer makers. It is tested by designer makers and the company’s CEO, Ann Marie Shillito, is an internationally known and respected designer maker and jeweller. She will be here to give hands-on demos and she promises it will be great fun, for all ages!
