We're delighted to launch a new series of lovely online tutorials called 'Cupsmith Creates'. Each free tutorial focuses on something you can do at your kitchen table, with a cup of tea or coffee to hand. Whether it's crafting, creating, drawing or making, each short tutorial gives us all the chance to sit down, slow down and take a moment to do something really relaxing.
This month the lovely Ellie at Surrey Art School brings us her Spring tutorial where we learn to paint some pretty easter-inspired eggs in inks and natural dyes - she even paints with coffee!
So make yourself a cuppa, grab a paintbrush and paper and spend 20 minutes losing yourself in the world of birds' eggs and nature. Click on the photo below to start your free tutorial! Or follow this link https://youtu.be/HOxIj_5YMy8 .
We'd love to see what you do, so do share your results using the hashtag #cupsmithcreates. We'll feature them on our social media channels and send you some of our organic tea to say thankyou!
PS Do have a look at Ellie's brilliant online Sketchbook Club. Inspired by nature and infused with mindfulness, it's a brilliant way to learn about the seasons and to find a little moment of calm in our often all too chaotic world. We're big fans.
