Highlights: 5th Birthday #Makerversary

The last Make Escape night at the Hackney Attic was our fifth Birthday Makerversary!

31st May was a night of fun and frolics, with the only theme of the night being celebration!

It was great to meet so many new crafting faces, as well as welcome back our familiar creative friends, some who have been attending since the very first session!


Hygge guru Tone Ward helped crafters create crochet granny squares, teddy bears, and even crocheted bags.  

And the knitting corner was a strong as ever, with yarn and conversation aplenty.


Tonertex Foils brought the sparkle and shine to the evening! Michelle actually created this unique embellishing material, and on the night helped our crafters to create dazzling effects on fabric and card.


No party outfit is complete without a statement accessory, and Momtaz was showing everyone how to make fabulous Pompom earrings using clever speedy pompom makers, kindly loaned by Fabrications for the evening.


Resident tutor Mia designed hand-stitched felt coasters, with a foodie theme, perfect  for party! The most popular designs for the attendee makers were the watermelon and the citrus slice. Fruity!

The felt for this workshop was kindly donated by Hobbycraft, Thank you!


As ever we had an array of papers and card for craft
 freestyling, including Birthday cake colouring-in.


To help celebrate the wonderful items made on the evening we had a mini photo booth for your makes, complete with pop up signs featuring the social media tags for the evening.

We saw lots of you pose with a big grin and the 'I made this!' sign, so please do share them, we'd love to see! Tag us on Twitter and Instagram @themakeescape #TheMakeEscape #Makerversary 

And no party would be complete without our fabulous DJs The Spinning Yarns, there with a wealth of celebration themed tracks.

They even played 'Happy Birthday' as a cake, featuring the awesome Birthday Flier design by Sally Hughson, was presented!

Its been such a fantastic five years of crafting with you all, here's to the next five!

Our next free event is on 31st July, and the night will be themed on the 'Summer of Love'!

Craft workshops, music and special guest tutors coming your way. Hackney Attic, 270 Mare Street, London, E8. 

More details will follow, for now, save the date!
