The workstation is almost finished and I have plans to run 1 or 2 children workshops next week during half term! There is still a lot to do in the craftroom but it would be good to give the children something fun to do. Must get cracking on planning kits and advertising to make it a success! More news to come as things are finalised, watch this space…..
The workstation has been painted, just the top to have its gloss coat! I planned the drawers to be different colours and to mark the tools to match for each workstation. When I had picked my colours I set up a spreadsheet to plan everything, and it looked fine on paper, but then when I came to actually ask the painters to do it I realised a big clash in colours.
This was what I was presented with on arriving
I was not keen on the red and purple together as they clash in my mind. So I decided to change the red with the pink so that pink and lilac go together and red and orange go together.
This is the result and looks much better on the eye.
The scrapbooking station is coming along nicely, almost finished now. The tiling on the wall behind has been completed and it makes the area look more finished off now. The white area behind is having a magnetic roll stuck to it so that I can attach all my dies for easier accessibility and to look attractive. The scrapbook area, below.
I am going to tidy it up in preparation for the kids crafty workshops during the half term holiday, it won’t be completed but it will be well on its way to being functional. Off to the craftroom now…
