What you will do
Be amazed what you can create with different types of rope, gold plated findings, some brass beads, a spot of glue and dash of design talent from the lovely Jeni Walker. Jeni is a community artist and crafter who loves spreading the joy of making to all ages.
Maiden Aunt evenings are a world away from the classes you did at school. You're encouraged to talk to each other, doodle, daydream and even enjoy a drink (no pranks on the teacher though, please). Mistakes are embraced as part of the creative process and there's no such thing as a fail. We're all about creating a social experience so you get extra marks for swapping hints and tips, and telling each other how awesome the things they are making are. We love it when people continue the crafter party on socials and when there's some good chat between the different groups.
We curate talented designers to offer you trend led accessories that you can make yourself. This is a brilliant way to spend an evening with friends making something useful, unique and joyful!
We want people to experience the joy of making things even when they don't think of themselves as creative. We love it when people go home and keep making so we offer crafts that are suitable for all levels and that don't require any special skills, tools or materials. You will also be provided with written instructions, templates and a list of our suppliers.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
About your host, Maiden Aunt
Maiden Aunt is dedicated to making the mindfulness and delight of craft accessible to all. We curate the best designs allowing you to make trend-led fashion and home accessories that are personal, unique and joyful.
Maiden Aunt is creating a collective experience in person and over social media to share our crafty discoveries as widely as possible. We want to create a positive space for making and socialising.
Each month, we pick one item and craft and work with independent designers to develop workshops in that month that will be suitable for all abilities. If you can’t make it or want to organise your own event, there will also be a corresponding all you need kit. We can then continue the conversation by sharing pictures and stories of our own versions of the make.
You benefit from fresh, creative ideas. Independent designers and businesses benefit from showcasing to customers in a different context.
If you have any questions, please contact us using the ‘contact host’ button on the website page.
