At Four Pillars, they take their gin very seriously. You see, they LOVE gin; they love everything about it - the distilling, the craft, the cocktails, the creativity and the story telling of Australian craftspeople just doing the thing they love best. So that is why The Windsor Workshop has chosen to pair up with Four Pillars to offer you a GIN MASTERCLASS that you will absolutely LOVE.
In this workshop you will learn how to carve your own re-usable rubber stamps using lino cutting tools. You will then use your hand carved stamps to block print your own Christmas cards, envelopes and tags.
The Letterettes are able to transform their hand-crafted letterforms into a variety of applications, including signage, book covers, gift cards and advertising campaigns. And now you can join the Letterettes at The Windsor Workshop for a Brush Lettering Workshop worth writing home about!
Do. Not. Miss. This. Sensation. Loose Leaf will be reconnecting you with nature as you make a leafy Christmas Wreath to rival any you’ve had before.

You can meet Ingrid Tufts - wonder woman of porcelain powers at The Windsor Workshop making Christmas bells as gifts for family and friends (or yourself if you are anything like us!)…. Students will make Christmas bells designed by Ingrid using hand built components, which will be fired and glazed and ready for collection after the workshop.
Sashiko (translated to ‘little stabs’) is the term used to describe the beautiful, and historically functional Japanese embroidery, using white cotton thread on indigo fabric. Generating patterns from both nature and folklore, Sashiko has emerged from a mending or ‘reinforcement of garment’ ability once taught to Japanese girls as a way to determine their suitability for marriage, into a decorative and meditative stitching technique enjoyed by crafting and textile enthusiasts the world over.
The Japanese word BORO literally means ‘ragged or tattered’ and is a traditional example of patchworked fabric. Historically in Japan, indigo and kimono fabric was truly precious and never discarded - old cloth was repaired and stitched together to make new items for every-day use. In this class we will learn how to stitch, mend and quilt layers of recycled cloth to give them new life in this traditional Japanese way.
