Founded by Jane Gois in 2010 Tea & Crafting has grown steadily over the years and is now London's top private craft venue. We're really proud of our central premises in Covent Garden and we are certainly doing everything we pass on the crafting bug to you crafty Londoners!

We are a group of friendly artist experts who are partial to a bit of old-fashioned craftsmanship with a modern twist. If your undiscovered creative side is simply yarn-ing to get then join one of our crafty workshops and spend a few hours learning something new. Expect to learn new skills, show off creations and have a lot of fun!

All our workshops are project based meaning you leave with a completed item at the end. There is ALWAYS cake, tea and coffee to keep you fuelled whilst you craft. Vegan and gluten free diets always catered for too at each workshop.

I loved the class. It was very well explained and the teacher was lovely. I would recommend to anyone new to embroidery (like me!)

I'm a total beginner and the class was easy to follow and fun. I'll be practicing and coming back!

I was a complete beginner and I felt like the zoom set up wasn't the best way to support learning crochet from scratch. Although the kit received before the class was excellent, the class itself did not live up to my expectations. Zoom camera was difficult to see as set up position meant alot of the demonstration was out of view and at an angle. All the major steps to being able to complete a granny square were covered within the very early parts of the class in too little time and detail for my liking and pace. I would have benefitted from a very slow step by step - making sure everyone had acheived it before moving on. As it was I felt left behind and not very supported. The class facilitator had a good grasp of crochet and was nice but I didn't feel that she had considered the way to impart the information positively and successfully. I left feeling frustrated and incapable. I wouldn't do it again.

I enjoyed the class, it was really fun. Lino cut is a very different way to create pictures from what I have done before and I was pleased with the result. The material provided was great and the teacher was lovely.

Class was excellent, teacher was super friendly and knowledgeable and helpful and I really enjoyed making the tapestry- will definitely be getting into this as a craft. Few things that disappointed me were the fact you didn鈥檛 get to keep the loom I think that would have been great. When you choose your wools I think that the teacher should say that鈥檚 your choice for the project and that way no one is battling over shared wool. Finally there were 13 in the group and I felt bad for the teacher because it was quite difficult for her to give people enough focus. 8 should be the maximum.

Fantastic class learning how to make a macrame plant hanger! Really good teacher, very clear instructions and helpful advice! Also very accomodating for us bringing in decorations and a cake for our friends birthday. Thanks for a brilliant class!

I have really enjoyed this friendly, helpful and relaxed workshop. I wasn't an absolute beginner to crochet, but I didn't expect to get as much out of the class as I did! With clear and easy to follow instructions I have made a gorgeous 1,5 squares during the class and I can't wait to practice more over the weekend.

It鈥檚 amazing what you can learn in a few hours! Highly recommend this class. Thanks to Maddie for being a great teacher in Macrame.

I loved this class! I got the instruction and attention I needed to actually learn the mechanics of sewing, rather than just surviving the class with no real takeaway. My tote bag looks rad and I can't recommend this experience enough. THANK YOU!

Nice workshop, maybe too much expensive for the lesson gained at the end!

The concepts is great and I enjoyed it. The fact that we are offered tea/coffee and cupcakes is lovely and appreciated that we could keep our embroidery as well. However, i believe it is not very cheap compared to the enthusiasm of the teacher. The group was nice, but she should have encouraged some discussions. I could see that there were some people going there for socializing, but it was a bit awkward after a while. Maybe at least putting some music on would be a good idea. The teacher looked a bit annoyed that she needs to work, which was quite off-putting.

Great class! Teacher was very patient and encouraging and was able to help individuals at a pace that suited them. Got to take a crochet hook and yarn home with us too so we could practice. After just the 1 class, I鈥檝e been able to make a whole scarf and intend to continue crocheting and trying out different patterns. Definitely recommend.

Wonderful class and what a beautiful studio space! Snuggled up in busy Covent Garden, a happy, colourful studio to create beautiful pieces of work! The tutor was so welcoming and friendly and gave her time to each and every one of us! Lovely class, thoroughly enjoyed it!

Dear Obby I attended the beginners course in knitting at Covent Garden with Nessa the excellent tutor on 16th November between 7pm-9.30pm which i really enjoyed. I was really happy with the location and the teacher nessa who was very patient with me and had some understanding of deaf people and our sign language.The atomasphere of the group was very positive with the students being really interactive with each other and friendly.We were able to learn garter stich/stocking stitch/purl stich and how to cast on and off it was really interesting and enjoyable. I hope top go back to the class in the future to continue learning the skills of knitting and to meet new people. Regards Haroon Anwar.

This was a fantastic class. Zoe is a very knowledgeable and excellent teacher, she was very patient and happy to go over the techniques until we all understood, working with us individually when we all were working at a different pace, which I appreciated. The venue was also lovely and in a good location. Thanks for your help Zoe!

I enjoyed the class, Vanessa was very helpful, although reaching someone left handed is an effort! We had some treats and got a booklet to follow at home, happy knitting!

I enjoyed my learning in the class Beginners Crochet Granny Squares . The teacher was very good and helpful. She was patiently communicating to me due I am deaf. The class the learners were very nice and smiled. I recommend people want to learn the class from it and you will find useful and enjoyable in learning. The location was very nice and atmosphere was lovely.

Great class to re-gain confidence with a sewing machine. Gentle tempo and lots positive encouragement even through my tangled thread. Lovely clear teaching and very enjoyable, time flew by! Recommend for the total beginner and the 'only learnt at school so it's been a while'.

Truly fantastic! Laura was an excellent teacher, clearly very passionate about her craft which extended to all of us in the class. I'm really proud of my first creation and look forward to trying this again!

I really enjoyed this class. I am left-handed and the tutor was enthusiastic and extremely patient. The class is small so you have one on one time if you're not picking the technique up straight away. If you want to learn how to crochet, I highly recommend this class.

Vanessa was so supportive and patient! A great way to spend a few hours on a Thursday and I've been knitting up a storm on the tube since :)

Lovely class. Welcoming and inspiring atmosphere. Excellent teaching with time, care and consideration for people of all stages of ability. And a great cup of tea!
Michelle

The materials & workshop space were great. I took a friend. We both enjoyed the activity. We especially liked that we could complete our work in one session but it was an ambitious task. Most participants finished their piece past the time set. We were disappointed by the teacher who was unwelcoming

What a fantastic class! I contacted the host before and asked if I could make a hat for a baby and she made sure to have special yarn for me! Really fun class with a great teacher! I will definitely be going back for my next project.
