(Flier design: Sal Hughson)
We are turning 5!!
This month marks FIVE YEARS of The Make Escape FREE CRAFT NIGHT and we are so excited to invite you to join us for an evening of crafting & celebrating. But first can we just take a moment to appreciate our Birthday Flier? It's been designed by Sally Hughson, how awesome is the Paper Yarn she made?
BIRTHDAY MAKERVERSARY LINE-UP:
Sew fruity coasters with Mia sponsored by Hobbycraft
Well you can't have a party without the food! Sew these yummy coasters with our resident Craft Designer and Tutor Mia Vilcins. Make just one, or a set. Our felt stash for this workshop has been kindly donated by Hobbycraft who have all kinds of felt in store, even animal print.
Make pompom earrings with Momtaz
After her recent travels to India where Make Escape Founder Momtaz bought five pairs of pom pom earrings she's got a bit obsessed with them and will be showing you how to make your own pair to brighten up your summer wardrobe. Or if you're not a big of earrings, you can make a bag charm or pom-pom keyring instead.
Learn to crochet with Tone - suitable for beginners
(or join our knit & knatter!)
Crochet is one of the coolest crafts there are. You barely need any materials (just a hook and a ball of yarn) and off you go, you can make blankets, cute creatures, clothes, jewellery and bags which is exactly what our Special Guest Tutor Tone Ward, a specialist in Norwegian Hygge, will be teaching. She'll show you how to crochet circles or a classic granny square which you can patch together to make a bag or use as a coaster, or why not frame it as wall art?
Or if you need help with a knitting or crochet project you are working on, bring it along and Tone will help you!
