There was a record number of newbie crocheters who got hooked on hooking, oodles of sparkly glitter for accessory making and we turned coffee jars into clever lanterns. As ever we were joined by The Spinning Yarns DJs behind the decks who treated Make Escapers to eerie sounds and terrifying tunes throughout the night.

Thanks to everyone who came.
GLOW-IN-THE-DARK CROCHET GHOSTS WITH TONE WARD
When our in-house Crochet Queen Tone Ward suggested running a glow-in-the-dark session we were like wooooaaaah! Really?! Yup! it actually happened! Tone taught a record number of newbies who had never crocheted before to make crochet ghosts with glow sticks inside. Huge congratulations to everyone!
Natasha Steer is the creative brains behind Creatabot where she regularly teaches community craft workshops in Kent. Her ethos is the same as ours to make crafts accessible to all and she always values the contribution craft and creativity plays in mental wellbeing. Natasha designed a fun glittery session making spooky but sparkly brooches of bats, spiders and skeletons.
PAPER SHADOW LANTERNS WITH MIA LITTLEWOLF
A London cabbie called Sian messaged us recently and said she had collected lots of glass coffee jars and would we like them? We accepted them instantly! We love receiving donations of craft supplies. Mia designed a clever paper shadow lantern workshop which was our most popular craft session of the night. Thanks Sian!
And finally in our free-form collage corner there were some kooky cat masks being conjured up.
Well done crafters!
