Highlights: Carnival Couture Craft Night

You came, you crafted and you got into the carnival spirit! Here are some snaps from our most stylish craft night yet!

Tree from Stitchless TV showed us how to sew zips in to make-up bags using specially designed Carnival Couture fabric printed just for us by Bags Of Love. (WOW!) 

Momtaz & Tree

Well you can't have a carnival without masks - (ok maybe not sleep masks but they will come in use for post carnival recovery)

Knit & Knatter - guest tutor & knitting princess Louise Walker taught newbies like lovely Zahra how to knit

Over in the Collage Corner there was musical instrument making and lots of colouring, cutting & sticking, just how we like it!

Want more? Our next Craft Night is our Frost Fair on Tuesday 24th November 2015 at The Hackney Attic. See you there!
