Join this class for an evening of festive DIY crafting, creating some stylish gifts and decorations, and making some friends along the way!
Christmas decorations have long been an important element of the festive season. The silvery tinsel that we decorate our trees with originated from Germany in the early 1600s, showing that this tradition is long standing. However, the first real tinsel was actually made from real silver and cut into very thin strips. Now that’s dedication to cause!
Students will rotate around 3 tables, all offering a pre-prepared kit of materials and expert tutelage, with a focus on learning, creating and socialising! Each section will last approximately 50 minutes before moving onto the next the next craft. The menu consists of: -Pom pom making -Needle felted robin decorations -Finger knitting and MACRO French knitting
Mulled wine, fruit juices, and festive snacks will be on offer throughout the class

Fabrications - an East London based creative hub!
Fabrications is an independent gallery, shop and workshop dedicated to the best contemporary textile practice and design, with a particular interest in eco-conscious design.
Fabrications opened in June 2000 in a refurbished derelict shop on Broadway Market in Hackney, East London. The shop's founder, Barley Massey, has spent the last 16 years finding ingenious ways to turn scraps into original fabrics and using recycled materials to create cutting-edge items. Since 2012, "The Imaginarium", a fully-fitted working studio, has hosted workshops and classes.
Barley has been awarded as one of Kevin McCloud's (Grand Designs) Green Heroes for her minimally-processed, up-cycled products, which "demonstrate a lightness of touch backed up by a rigorous approach".
