Workshops in March

For those of you wanting to know about the workshops we'll be holding at The Make Cafe this month, we thought we'd do a little feature today detailing all the classes. We've got lots to choose from this month, from home-wares to kids accessories, for complete novices and some for the more experienced crafters.

If you would like more information on any of the following workshops, feel free to send an email to or ring up to speak to one of our lovely ladies in store on 03 348 6187.
