Shah Cheragh is so inspiring and sparkly.

Regardless of your faith, the Shah Cheragh in Iran is a site worthy of reverence. The mosque is adorned with thousands of pieces of glass and tile that turn flickering photons into a radiant reflection of its name, "king of the light." Watch the video.

Craft Cafe - Camberley

No automatic alt text available.
The Craft Cafe is a place for people to come together and share their crafting ideas, questions, resources. A monthly get-together at St. Mary's, Park Road, Camberley held once a month on a Thursday.
Things are changing at Craft Cafe. Instead of our fortnightly meetings, we will be going to a monthly meeting.
At our monthly meetings, we will be running a programme of affordable workshops. You will be able to do a taster class, in a skill and technique that you may have wanted to try before, but never had the chance.
If you don't want to do a workshop, you can still come along and bring your own Craft project.
We hope you will like the new programme of workshops and we look forward to welcoming you at Craft Cafe!

Amazing paper artist Chie Hitotsuyama

For most people newspapers are for reading, but for this artist Chie Hitotsuyama they they serve a different purpose. She tightly rolls up newspapers, to create incredibly realistic animal sculptures. The whole process is done by hand and she even uses the coloured print to enhance the contours and gradations of her pieces. Watch this video inspirational work!
