When I was about 10, my family got this set; The Family Creative Workshop. It was published by Plenary Publications International and comprised 23 books and an Index. I would spend hours poring over the different crafts (much like I did with the family’s Craft Cards set), dreaming of the things could make, but never actually doing it. I’d love to know what it is that prevents me from actually doing the crafts I see. They fill me with enthusiasm, but it’s rare that I actually get on and do something. There’s always a diversion; not the right wool, need a different fabric, wrong paints… I have so many materials now, and am trying to focus on actually using up the supplies I have. Anyway, back to the Family Creative Workshop. Published during the mid-70s, the set includes 24 volumes of comprehensive guides to an awesome array of crafts. Some of the projects include: macrame, string art, mosaics, sand painting, tie dye and terrariums as well as perrenial favourites such as knitting, crocheting and beading.
