Creating with Arna
Do you like to create or do you enjoy handcrafting? During Creating with Arna we make original accessories from leather, sisal bags, greeting cards or lace mandalas.
We create brooches, belts, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, headbands, even jars or pictures from leather. There is an inexhaustible amount of ways of use and it is up to you what will interest and entertain you. Do you prefer jewelry from beads? Let’s create earrings, necklaces or bracelets! It can be an original gift for your loved ones. If you like practical things, let’s create a practical sisal bag. It will replace the classic string bag and it is fashionable! Moreover, it is also ecological. We also create mandala from lace, which has recently become very widespread and is among the favorite art techniques for relaxing. Mandala can also be used to express what is otherwise difficult to communicate in words. We also make greeting cards and name tags – not only for Christmas but for all other occasions. There are no limits for your imagination! Before Christmas, you can also make an Advent wreath to decorate your table or to hang it on the door.
