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!
