We're getting ready for the celebrations to start, here's a message from our CEO... 


"7 days of celebrations, to say thank you from us all at Hochanda, that we hope will keep you busy with craft projects for many weeks to come. The past 12 months for me has been truly inspiring. To be able to meet so many of you at Ally Pally earlier this year was such a wonderful experience. We couldn’t wait to book up for September so we hope to see you there again. For the senior management team and myself we have a very clear goal in that we want to reach as many of you as possible with variety. This is either by broadcasting our live shows on traditional shopping TV platforms, or even meeting many of you at exhibitions and shows and even more recently launching Masterclass Live HD. All we do comes from listening to you, we monitor all the online forums closely and regularly communicate with many of you directly. Hochanda is YOUR Home of Crafts, Hobbies and Arts so please do continue to tell us the crafts you want more of and services you want us to provide. We will continue to listen and do what we can to build a home with a family that you are proud to be part of… here’s to the next 12 months and so much more exciting news and developments to come your way." - Jamie Martin, CEO

We really hope you can come and join us in celebrating, we have had an amazing 12 months and plan to keep on doing so by bringing you more Entertainment, Inspiration and Education across a variety of Crafts, Hobbies and Arts.

So I’m challenging myself on 2 levels – 1) use up my stuff; and 2) try something new.

Well I had some empty candle jars so I thought this would be a good way to use up some stuff and try something new at the same time and this is what I came up with.

I am over the moon with the results as it’s the first time I’ve tried anything like this.

What I used: ·Empty candle jar ·Decoart white gesso ·Starlight paints ·Decoart metallic paints ·Imagination Crafts rice papers ·Imagination Crafts fabric glue ·Twine ·Raffia ·Hessian ·Ribbon ·Paper flowers and embellishments from craft box
