What you will do
2 hour workshop
In this workshop, you will be shown a selection of festive crafts, all suitable for beginners. We will be offering embroidering gorgeous geometric journals, sewing a pair of mittens using a jumper that has shrunk in the wash and turned into cosy felt (BYO or let me know if you need us to get one for you), and stamped twig pencils. Choose one or see how many you can cram into the time you are there. All profits will go to Mind.
You will learn to use basic hand sewing, and stamping to create charming presents for your friends and family. Templates and materials will be provided so you can be sure that you will create something that you will be proud of.
Maiden Aunt evenings are a world away from the classes you did at school. You're encouraged to talk to each other, doodle and daydream. 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 afternoon with friends making something useful, unique and joyful!

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.
A hot drink and a slice of cake will be provided. All proceeds go to charity! If you can't attend in person then contact me to buy a kit to make at home or to organise your own fundraising Mind Crafternoon.
All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
