At You Can Folk It, we are renowned for our painting workshops in a box. Whether you believe you are creative or not, we truly believe that everyone can be an artist. Begin with our popular Starter kits and let us teach you three beautiful designs that can be created using simple dots of paint. Just like learning to write, you can then move forward to learn beautiful brushstrokes. Just like learning to write, all it takes is practice and a little patience. So, let us provide you with everything you need to begin your creative journey, to give you the tools you need to hand paint your own greetings cards, gifts and even your old unloved furniture. Be warned though, once you begin everything will become your next project if it stays still long enough.
After trying her hand at watercolours and other crafts, Carol believed she wasn't cut out for creativity until she discovered Folk Art during her time living in Australia. Since then she has owned her own Craft studio before travelling the world, teaching the techniques contained within our range of kits. She passionately believes that everyone should be able to access creative pastimes and in 2014, launched the first Series of painting kits. Containing patterns to transfer, step by step instructions and a DVD, Carol has provided an educational range that can teach anyone how to paint using the centuries old techniques of this beautiful art form.
Always take time to regularly reflect on your business; where you wish to go and how you have developed. It is always easy to get caught up in the day to day but it is important to take a step back every now and then to celebrate your achievements, no matter how small.
