For a two-year old’s birthday party, I took away one of the tables to make more floor space and I loved finding lots of my children’s old toys for them to play with.
“We had a small party for our son’s second birthday at Nicky’s wonderful Green Shed. The kids loved playing in the cosy shed, running around the garden, chasing Maisie the dog and watching the tortoises. There’s something magical about this beautiful, peaceful and bohemian place, well hidden right in the middle of Muswell Hill. Highly recommended!”
Words and Wine
Nichola put on another lovely creative writing event, which was fully booked. The next one will be on Wednesday 31st October, 8pm until 10pm. Normally I have flowers on the table but this time I had some helxine plants, which I bought for my miniature gardens, so I used them instead. To find out more about the creative writing evenings, please go to Creative Writes.
Scrapbook sessions for children aged 6 and upwards
I’m doing two scrapbook workshops this half term, on Monday 22nd and Tuesday 23rd October, from 2pm until 5.30pm. They are very relaxed sessions and children can go at their own pace with as much or as little help from me as they want. They work individually using materials from my huge collection of vintage fabric, paper and all sorts of wonderful craft supplies. They get fully engrossed and love the colourful results. Find out more and book here.
“My children loved their time scrapbooking at The Green Shed. It was a calm creative session and Nicky helped and encouraged them to think about the content and design of their books, while letting them loose with an amazing selection of craft supplies. They have been showing off their books to everyone ever since! We’ll definitely be back for more activities at The Green Shed with Nicky. Many thanks again.” August 2018
Create a miniature autumn woodland garden
Thursday 25th October 2018, 2pm to 4.30pm
I have 10 spaces for this lovely workshop. Children aged 6/7 upwards will make a miniature garden approximately 24cm by 38cm using real plants, moss, stones and all sorts of other lovely bits. They’ll have as much help from me as they want and will take home a magical little garden, which will thrive if left in a light place and watered. My background is in horticulture and I was a florist for 10 years so I’m really excited about this workshop (I hope to do one for adults soon). Find out more and book here.
I will also be doing a winter wreath workshop for adults with a very good florist friend of mine sometime in November (date to be arranged). Please contact me if you’re interested.
WINTER POP-UP SHOP
I’m having a big declutter/clearance sale in The Green Shed on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th November from 11am to 4pm both days. I’ll be selling ceramics, old furniture, prints, pictures by well-known illustrator Andy Bridge, vintage fabric lavender bags, floral ceramic jugs and lots lots more. Also, a lovely lady called Luisa Hayes will be selling her vintage painted furniture in my driveway. The door will then be open to walk through my garden to The Green Shed, where everything will be on sale. If you want more details before the sale, please contact me.
I used to have a shop in Crouch End at 128 Crouch Hill called The Middle Room and some of the things in the sale will be things from then that it is now time to let go of.
If you’d like to get in touch about any of my events, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. That’s all for now xxx
