FREE Summer of Love Craft Night in Hackney, 31st July

It's The Summer of Love baby!

This month it's good vibes all round as we take inspiration from the Summer Season of Festivals for our own 'Craftstock' or 'Craftonbury'! 
It will also be a night of conscious crafting, as we have three very special guests joining us for the evening.....    

The Line-up:

Become a Craftivist!
Special guests Craftivist Collective in collaboration with charity Mind will be inspiring you to change the world, one stitch at a time. Embroider a powerful slogan, or sew a message to you MP, and become a crafting change-maker.

Mindful making: Flower Power

Bryony Acketts from Blooming Barnets  will be running a special Mind Crafternoon where you can create fabulous flower crowns, to ensure you have a beautiful blooming barnet. An essential festival accessory, and a great way to boost your mental wellbeing. There's nothing quite like a spot of crafting to make you feel better.

Peace Out Pair

Adorn yourself further and make a pair of 'peace out' earrings with Mia.
Use simple materials to make a effortless set of drop earrings. You can even go green and use recycled magazines!

Knit & Knatter

Our usual corner of yarn will be there for you to knit and crochet. Free your inner hippie chick (or chap!) by creating something groovy, man. There's always someone on hand to help you so beginners are always welcome. 

Performing on the main stage will be our Resident DJs The Spinning Yarns, playing funky tracks and soulful songs.

***& of course we have our own Private bar*** 

Whether you're a regular, haven't been to our night in a while or have never heard of us until now, come along and join the fun. It's unlike any other night out in London and you'll leave with something awesome you've made. Yay!

Please share the details of our night with friends/family/colleagues who you think will enjoy it. 
The more the merrier!

Look forward to seeing you there.
