Make Invaders: Craft & Video Game Night July 30th

This month we're teaming up with retro games night Once Upon A Console, to bring you an evening of geek craftery. You'll have a chance to make video game inspired clay models, cross-stitch classic graphics, illustrate characters AND play a host of fun games including Sonic, Donkey Kong and Street Fighter. 

Play Games With Once Upon A Console
Check out this booty! Games, games, games, waiting for you to get your mitts on. Once Upon A Console is a regular night at The Hackney Attic where you can challenge your opponent to classic games on Sega and Playstation consoles on the small or big screen. Get a taste of their night on this awesome video.

This month they are celebrating their 1st birthday (check out their Super Smash Bro party on Wed 17th July).  PLUS they are also joining us at The Make Escape on July 30th for a night of crafting meets gaming. 

As well as doing things like this:

You can also make things like this:

We're not talking plasticine either, this is serious Fimo clay sculpting.

Cross-Stitch Video Game Graphics With Becky From The Craft Closet
The cross-stitch Aida fabric used to make these gamey buttons have a rather brilliant pixelated vibe about them, just like a real video game. Rebecca Wood from The Make Escape team and one half of craft kit suppliers The Craft Closet will be showing you to stitch classic games icons. No sewing experience necessary.
Make games inspired video models with Al
Al is the amazing person who looks after us at The Hackney Attic and he also co-runs Once Upon A Console.Tonight however he'll be casting the games aside for some handiwork of another variety - showing you to make games models using Fimo clay.
Draw your own games characters
Any excuse to rope Lucky AKA Farcreazy Farid back into running an illustration workshop for us, his last two were epic!
This month Lucky will be helping you to draw and design your own video game characters.

As ever we'll also be supplying yarn and needs so you can learn to knit (or pop along to work on your own project), you'll get a chance to cut & stick to your hearts content in our College Corner and we've been promised another fine soundtrack from our DJs The Spinning Yarns

A whole night of fun and frolicks in Hackney for FREE!
You won't find this kind of value and friendlier people anywhere else in London! That's a FACT.
