What you will do
2 hour workshop
There's nothing quite like a full moon to get your body out of whack. Let's do some cross stitch to calm ourselves down and make some beautiful pieces of textile art. We will walk you through the simplicity of cross stitch by working on these ready-printed images of planets and stars. This is a very relaxed class for beginners to get to grips with cross stitch.
Your cross stitch panel is the perfect size for a cushion front or to be hung in a frame above your birth chart - my 5th house in in Venus, so you know I'll make sure you're having a good time. You won't finish your piece in the class, this is a slow and relaxed craft to pick up whenever you need to zone out, but you will go home with all of the yarn and equipment you need to finish your piece.

We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
About your host, The London Loom
The London Loom is a weaving studio in Hackney in East London, created by Francesca Kletz in 2016. The London Loom was founded to build a community of people who love making things with their hands and appreciate how good it is for you.
At The London Loom we want to encourage people to indulge in creating for pure satisfaction and fun. We hold community workshops and smaller classes in our studio where we welcome adults and children to work alongside each other; we believe that creativity and inspiration can come from anywhere, it’s not limited to age or background.
Francesca has been teaching weaving and other textile crafts since 2015 and has taught weaving workshops for Tate Modern, Southbank Centre, Scouts, Hackney Arc and the Royal Society of Sculptors and has appeared in (amongst others) Mollie Makes, Stylist, PomPom Quarterly, Time Out (on the front cover!) The Telegraph and is the author of Weave This (Hardie Grant 2018). The London Loom was also named Mollie Makes Best Craft Workshops of 2019.
Ultimately we want to share the good that we feel from learning new skills and making beautiful, tactile things. We teach and host a range of ‘alternative craft’ classes as well as our beginners weaving workshops, as long as there’s something to make, new people to meet and obnoxiously loud laughter to be had, we’re happy.
You have the choice of the Milky Way, the Moon, the Sun and Jupiter - we need to be notified of preferred cross stitch kit by 24th January so if you respond to your booking confirmation email with your preferred design we'll make sure that's all set for you on the night.Each kit contains: pre-printed canvas, a gold-eye needle and all the yarn required for this project as well as detailed stitching instructions.The finished piece will be 40cm x 40cm.
