Craft workshops in London for January 2012
Posted on: January 11, 2012
You may have already caught a glimpse of our upcoming craft classes in London for spring 2012 and hopefully you’re interest has been spiked to dip your toe into one or more of them.
We just wanted to flag the workshops planned for this month, Beginners’ Crochet and Bunting making with Valentines’ Day just over the horizon.
Beginners’ Crochet – Sunday 22 January, 1-4pm, at Drink Shop & Do, Kings Cross, £35
This is becoming very much a Menders’ classic class. It seems many of you want to learn crochet and, even if you already have done the basics, maybe you’d like to brush up on long forgotten techniques. This 3-hr workshop will give the beginner a grounding in the important techniques for crochet; use of hook and yarn, basic stitches and the essentials of crocheting in the round. All materials are provided, including yarn and hook which you are able to take home and keep for future use. Refreshments are provided of tea and cake in the lively atmosphere of a craft cafe which will definitely help the creative juices!
Booking is essential as with 8 spaces available and 5 spaces (contact us if you want to go on the waiting list if the class is full!) already taken we can only accomodate the first 3 to apply so don’t hesitate too long! Go to the beginners’ crochet class page to book online or read more details.
Forever bunting – learn to sew and make a lovely banner – Sunday 29 January, 1-4pm at Drink Shop & Do, Kings Cross, £35
We heart bunting at Makedomend and we hope you do too. Surprise your significant other decorating the room with your very own handmade bunting! Or you may have another occasion in the future where you would like to surprise the guests with your own handmade good wishes banner. This is an ideal workshop to learn many basic sewing techniques which you can use on many other craft occasions – even to replacing lost buttons or repairing ripped seams!
The Menders will provide all the materials at this 3hr class and, if you’re feeling very adventurous, try your hand at a ‘mixed media’ banner and venture into knitting or crochet flags. That really will impress them with your super-creative skills.
The cost of the class is £35 and is at our favourite venue, Drink Shop & Do, 9 Caledonian Road, Kings Cross, London. All materials, tuition and refreshments are provided.
Booking can be made online by going to the bunting class page for more details.
Look forward to seeing you at one of our classes this season and don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like further information on classes or craft parties in London with Makedomend.
