Recent Good Cause Fundraiser – Donated to by LLCrafts

It was brilliant when one of my art students ‘Pat’ from my Galgorm Friday Night ‘Enjoy Painting- Art Class’ mentioned to us that she was involved in a fundraiser for her local primary school in Antrim, Northern Ireland, UK – ‘Steeples Nursery School‘.
We were delighted to be able to offer Pat this lovely wee ‘LLCrafts Painted Slate’ – ‘All Beary Welcome’ …. which we thought the children would just love!

We at LLCraftsFundraising just love to support good charity causes and fundraisers, so please contact us if you are having an event in Northern Ireland or UK, and we would be delighted to donate you a raffle prize! (we can even post to you)

Enjoy Painting – Art Students Artwork

Art Students ‘Enjoying their Painting’!

I thought I would show you some samples of the beautiful artwork my students have produced in my various ‘Enjoy Painting’ Art Classes, throughout the communities of Co.Antrim, Northern Ireland.

At all my cross-community classes, I always encourage each student to enjoy painting the subject matter of their choice and challenge themselves with colour mixing and drawing skills. Students are able to use whatever painting medium they wish in my classes, even experimenting with various mediums! ………… How else do you discover your favourite medium!

So here are a few photos of my students at work ……. and their finished artwork!

Some of the students busy painting away ….. at my ‘Tullygarley Community Centre’ Ballymena art class and one of my students framed ‘Watercolours’! ….. Looks beautiful!!










Contact me  if you want to join any of my ‘Cross-Community Classes’…………. and all are welcome, BEGINNERS & EXPERIENCED Artists!

Bespoke Clockface LLCrafts Orders

Grandfather Clock Face Restoration

Do you have an ‘Old & Rusty Grandfather Clockface’ ……… LLCrafts at Galgorm, Ballymena can restore it for you back to its former beauty!

Artist Louise Lester (BA Hons) can paint any beautiful design on a customer’s clockface, producing a perfectly unique and bespoke item in all its glory! Even if the old clockface is rusty and aged, bring it along and see it transformed.

All types of clockfaces can be restored, including this bespoke decorated sample of a ‘Moon Dial’ Clockface. The beautiful detailing of the numerals around the top curve and the delicate ‘world globe maps’ along the top edge, helps to display the ‘Moon Dial’ movement of this clockface.

Another beautiful example of Louise’s work is this ‘Steam Train’ commissioned clockface. The important aspect of this particular order was the quaint steam engine train scene, which the customer wished to be brought ‘back to life’ and brightened up. The scene was then complimented with lovely delicate corner flowers, to finish the design.

As you can see, the degree of damage and rust on this clockface before restoration was quite severe, however when fully restored the end painted result is refreshingly elegant. ClockFace_2

 So contact me at ‘LLCrafts’ –  with your old and rusty items, and restore some life back into them!
