Coming up: Treasure Island Jewellery Making Craft Night April 30th 2013

This month we're sailing the seven seas to lands afar in our Treasure Island Jewellery making Special.

Shiver Me Timers! Finger Knitted necklaces with Purple Claire
You don't need any equipment to make jewellery, just a ball of yarn and your fingers!  
Purpleclaire who joined us for last year's Winter Wonderland weaving session, will be running a workshop showing you how to make necklaces, bracelets and brooches using a selection of yarns, ribbons and upcycled materials.
Barnacles! It's Beaded Bangles with Sheridan Lane from Ever and Ava
Whether you prefer rubies or emeralds, the pirate in you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting a design  to make memory wire bracelets. Craft obsessed Sheridan specialises in vintage themed wedding jewellery like tiaras and haircombes but in keeping with our underwater adventure theme will supplying beads in sea shades like blues and turquoises.
Ahoy there! Collage Corner: Paper Beads with The Make Escape's Becky
Create pirate flags and treasure maps in our collage corner or make your every own beads using paper that you can thread into your accessory of choice with help from our very own Bekcy.
Knit & Knatter: Knitted Cuffs 
Every month our resident Knitting Guru Madelaine teaches people how to knit - even if they've never picked needles up in their lives. This month newbies and nifty knitters will have a chance to knit their own jewellery in the form of snazzy, comfy wrist cuffs. 
Maker's Market: A Certain Je Ne Sais Quoi
Jewellery designer Camilla Malmer will be selling her gorgeous literature inspired jewellery which you can check out here in her Etsy shop.

PLUS!!! We have one surprise workshop too!

As usual the Hackney Attic bar will be serving grog but our resident DJs Spinning Yarns have sadly had their ship hijacked and will be handing the anchors over to some real pirates...

All Hands On Decks who will be Vjing for the night. Did we just say Vjing???

Expect salty sounds and vicious videos to watch and listen to from Captain Morgan, Matt Overboard and Chester Copperpot as you craft the night away!

What could be more pleasurable?
