There aint no party like an #VIKINGARTYPARTY


All the lovely pictures in this post were taken by Search Laboratory
A few weekends ago I travelled across London for a crafty afternoon organised by Viking at Lumiere London

On arrival I was greeted by the welcoming Jennie. It was lovely to finally meet her after numerous emails and twitter conversations. I climbed the stairs to be met with the stunning decor, definitely interior goals for sure.

We were split into three groups and had an hour for each session, with a short break in-between for a cuppa and delicious pastries.






My first session was Modern Calligraphy with Suzie Dicker from A L'aise. She was so patient with me, despite me spilling ink all over the place and me 'creating' my own calligraphy style. It was actually really nice to sit down with a dip pen and ink and concentrate on my writing.








Then it was onto Mindful Orgami with Samuel Tasang. He had such a calm manner about him and was full of wise words, encouragement and knowledge. As you will know from my pervious post, i suffer from anxiety, so I really loved the idea of using origmai as a tool to think positively and to mediate.

During our session we made an envelope and I even made a bird with my clumsy chubby fingers. Not only does Samuel hold workshops, he also has a book out.


Last but not least was block printing with Jane Gois from Tea & Crafting . We were given some items to make a printing block and a white magazine file to go wild with. I opted for some simple lines as i'm not the most creative person and some summery yellow paint. It started off a little messy but once I got the hand of it, it turned out pretty good if I say so myself.

I was majorly impressive with how creative everyone was. The final products could have easily been sold at Oliver Bonas or Kikki.K


I really enjoyed my afternoon at #Vikingartyparty.. I've learnt some new skills and have been inspIred to try some and attempt some more arts and crafts with the items from my goody bag.

Viking have also blogged about the day which you can read here.
