Social Craftiness at C.O.W Studio

C.O.W Studio brought inspired artist-run craft workshops to Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. Located in a first floor studio, Creative Open Workshops (C.O.W) ranged from making Byzantine chain bracelets, lampshades or laptop sleeves, to floaty dresses and tote bags.

The workshops catered for groups of eight, with the full menu of ‘social craftiness’ updated regularly at

Keeping the groups small and intimate allowed each person to have quality time with the craft expert, an approach that is central to C.O.W Studio’s ethos. Larger parties for hens, birthdays, reunions, or any special occasion can be held at C.O.W by arranging a ‘pick and mix’ craft workshop with its founder, Francine Schokker.

“This is a space for individuals to try out new craft ideas and learn creative techniques, in a fresh and friendly environment. It’s exciting to continue working collaboratively with artists who will deliver the workshops too”, says Francine.

Freelance artist and photographer, Erin Power, is working alongside Francine to give C.O.W a distinct artist-studio feel. Erin will be assisting in the smooth running of the workshops, all of which are accompanied by delicious cake and drinks.

To book a workshop, ring 0121 212 9132 or email . C.O.W Studio opens on the 1st July 2011.
