Okay, hands up who learned a new hobby during the last two years? I know I did… Ever the over-achiever here’s full disclosure of things I started during lockdown/pandemic living:
- Baking (steaming buns, loaf cakes, scones, pancakes, cinnamon rolls)
- Having my first pet (a hamster – actually two)
- Building custom hamster homes
- Re-decorating (the entire kitchen, the cellar, my wardrobe area, our family computer cubby hole)
- Sewing, everything: reusable face covering, cushions, leather coin pouches, pockets, altering old clothes
- Modelling clay creations
- Upcycling Disney bags
- Selling things on eBay
- Skateboarding (honestly have never felt such mortal fear)
It’s been a tough time trying to stay occupied… BUT finally we are all able to try to make moves into something resembling the life we used to know, and excitingly this means that I am once again able to bring HENNA WORKSHOPS back to Bradford.
I was approaching in my DMs by the most perfect workshop space – Perfect.
TYRO Studios (Shipley) is a retail and studio space hosting a curated range of creative workshops and lifestyle events – think floral arranging mornings with a glass or two of rosé, choose a red wine and painting evening, or opt for a whisky education night; go for an embroidery afternoon with prosecco, or maybe relax with a couple of hours of mindful calligraphy and rosé.
Every workshop ticket is fully inclusive; expert tuition, all materials, your take home gift (where applicable) and refreshments; red wine, white wine, rosé, prosecco or if you prefer, gorgeous non-alcoholic alternatives.
The space is also home to a range of beautiful gifts, items from our workshops, stationery, homewares and art from local artists and beyond
I’m so excited – SO excited to be able to start henna workshops again with TYRO. Our two initial dates are:
TYRO Studios, 42 Westgate, Shipley BD18 3QX
You can book your place by clicking on the dates above, or visiting the TYRO website at www.tyrostudios.com/
And a final message from the wonderful TYRO Hosts, Izzy and Yvonne:
The word ‘tyro’ is the Latin word meaning ‘a beginner or a novice’ and at Tyro Studios we have created a space for all to learn without judgement or pressure to be anything but a beginner.
Our spaces are inclusive and safe for all people. All our workshops are run by incredibly talented and passionate tutors and are perfect for beginners. Our tickets are fully inclusive, you will not need to buy anything from us when you arrive; this includes all your materials and refreshments – all you need to provide is enthusiasm. Our workshops are aimed at adults (18+) as we serve alcohol.
Our classes are small (6-10 people) to ensure that everyone gets as much direct assistance from our tutors as possible and run from 1.5 hours to 3 hours maximum (please check your specific workshop for timings)
We cannot wait to meet and host you!
