Hill Street Workshop Wishlist

Hill Street Design House, Edinburgh design house, Edinburgh bloggers, workshops, creative classes, creative workshops, weaving workshop, resin jewellery workshop, acrylic jewellery workshop, silk marbeling workshop, biscuit clutch workshop

What do all of these awesome items have in common? Apart from being beautiful and super high on our wishlists, that is. The answer is that all of their designers are going to be holding workshops over the coming weeks. That's right, you can learn how to make these items (or similar) as part of Hill Street Design House's programme of summer workshops.

Hill Street is an awesome design hub based unsurprising, in Hill Street, Edinburgh. Not only does it house some of our favourite designers (looking at you Rowan Joy and Karen Mabon), we've also had a number of amazing times within their walls. The opening party was a hoot, their Halloween celebrations were wonderfully horrific and Scarf School was just immense! This summer, Hill Street are back with a host of wonderful new workshops. As you can see above, they have some amazing designers on board. Seriously, every single one is a dream class come true.

Starting on the 4th of June, they are kicking things off in style with the chance to create an exclusive Bonnie Bling necklace. The theme is house party and the finished piece includes a whole host of fun charms. There's cocktails and heels from the night before and hangover remedies in the form of eggs and Irn Bru. Plus, if you finish your first creation, there's the option to crate another extra special scroll slogan necklace. That's two Bonnie Bling acrylic wonders made with your own fair hands. Sound like a winner in our book.

The 12th June sees Mischke Lingerie return with a silk marbling workshop. Experiment with colours and patterns to create a pile of samples. And, what makes this class even better is that Mischke designer Hazel Lethaby will take your final length and create a special marbled piece for your underwear drawer. We've got our names down for this one so we might just see you there.

Over the weekend of 18/19th June there will be a full-on resin casting class with jewellery Jo Pudelko. Mixing beads, resin and metal Jo's designs are spectacular and this class allows you to create your own unique piece of jewellery.

On the 3rd of July there's weaving with Squid Ink Co as they return for another of their popular workshops. They always bring the most colourful of yarn and will teach you how to create you're own wall hanging. You can choose the 'all in' ticket which means you get to take away your own loom to keep or 'instruction' which is perfect for those who have attended before. 

The final workshop of the block is on 16th July and comes in the form of fabric printing and clutch making with Nikki McWilliams. We love Nikki's new biscuit themed pouches. They're perfect for carrying all the essential bits and bobs and look damn cute too. The class includes printing a biscuity inspired design and sewing up you're own clutch bag. 

I'm sure you'll agree it's a rather impressive list of classes!  And the Bonnie Bling, Mischke Lingerie and Squid Ink Co classes have both morning and afternoon options, so its easy to find a workshop to suit your schedule.
