Once upon a time a budding artist and crafter decided to teach some sunny little art courses to other people also interested in creating stuff. After a few happy months of playing with ideas, creating works, crafting, studying, printmaking and generally making a good old mess, in 2003, Magenta Sky was born, and that budding artist was Susan Yeates.
You've heard of blue sky thinking? Well, here we believe in 'Magenta Sky Thinking.' Think creatively, always look to learn new things and make, make make!
We just love making ‘stuff’ and have expanded from teaching just art and printmaking to other techniques such as sewing, crochet and other creative projects! Sharing our knowledge, ideas and motivating others to be creative is what we are all about!
We gain inspiration from a huge variety of sources… the world at large, fabric shops, exhibitions, car boot sales, photographs, other artists, magazines, books, people and places. Sometimes even a word or phrase will provide inspiration for a sewing project to make, a print to produce or even a workshop to teach!
We have loads of creative stuff available on our website www.magenta-sky.com. This includes a blog, free downloads, video tutorials, images, courses, patterns and much much more!
These Easter Egg decorations are a super-fun project that take around 1-2 hrs each to complete. Working in the Amigurumi style of crochet (continuous rounds of
double crochet) these are a fantastic project to practice your skills & 'eggs-periment' with different colours & combinations of yarn.
We show you how to make the first design and then give two different colour options for the other eggs! Quick tip on how to increase and decrease included as well.
Each egg has a little hanging loop at the top so you can hang them around the home. Perfect as gifts for friends & family!
