Highlights: Spooktacular Halloween Craft Night

Natasha, Mia, Tone & Momtaz
Last month saw a packed Hackney Attic of costume clad creatives, ready for a night of creepy crafting at our free Halloween craft night. 



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.

If you attended the shenanigans we'd love to see your pics, tag us on social media @TheMakeEscape (Twitter & Instagram). Here's our own pics from 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! 








 



SPARKLY SPIDERS & OTHER EERIE ACCESSORIES WITH NATASHA STEER




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!


COLLAGE CORNER 

And finally in our free-form collage corner there were some kooky cat masks being conjured up.





Well done crafters! 


The Make Escape's Momtaz & Mia
See you next month for more free crafting (Dec 12th Xmas spesh) - we also run workshops across London and have several other Christmas sessions lined up which we will be shouting about on social media or head to our main website www.themakeescape.com for more details.
