………September already, so time to think about next years cruises.
Seeing as we have had hardly any summer days in Edinburgh, I am looking forward to chasing the sun in 2020.
Although Bill, my husband and I have travelled as passengers, I have also taught arts and crafts for the last ten years, and feel privileged to have taught for Cunard, Saga, Fred Olsen and CMV.
Teaching on a ship is very different than onshore. The logistics include transporting materials and tools to the departure point; this can be anywhere from your local port to one at the other side of the world, occasionally at one days notice!
Planning is done months ahead and precise preparation is imperative – there are no branches of Hobbycraft or Michael’s in the middle of the Atlantic! Luckily, I have never forgotten anything on 25 cruises. Because I teach various crafts the list is extensive and can include crochet hooks, glue, cocktail sticks, written instructions, scissors, paint brushes, paint, needles, wire, beads, baby wipes……the list goes on and on.
I have been looking at photos of previous cruise projects for inspiration
Crochet mini frames
Designer gift wrapping
Decorative painting for beginners
Shuttle tatting for beginners
Silk ribbon embroidery
Canal boat painting
Wool tartan brooch for Burns night
Destination themed Valentine’s Day card
Twenty dollar origami shirt card
A4 paper bag
Must go…..lots to do preparing new projects.
