No tickets for Glastonbury?
Don't worry, that's £500+ saved AND you don't need to worry about your tent being washed away in a mudslide.
This month we're celebrating British music festivals with a full on festive craft fest, live music and a real tent.
String lovebeads into a hippy chic necklace or bracelet with the wonderful Sheridan from Ever and Ava, a local jewellery designer who will let you raid her stash of beautiful wooden beads .....we always like to spread some love and generosity. If you have any beads lying around at home, you are very welcome to bring them in and donate them too.
We're going on a conscious eco tip with some weaving. Purple Claire (who has previously joined us for peglooms and finger knitted jewellery) shows you that weaving can be done on almost any surface.
Combine ribbons, yarns, fabric scraps and card ton try your hand at this most satisfying of textile crafts. (Image from Pinterest).
We are delighted to be hosting some live music, a special set from Hackney duet The Something Sisters (they're the photo at the top of the blog!)
Vintage, folk melodies and sweet harmonies ensure the delicate vocals of Clarissa and Clare are the perfect backdrop to some gentle crafting. On stage 9PM.
Our in-house DJs The Spinning Yarns will be in the decks in between.
Step inside our woolley wonderland. Settle down on comfy cushions inside our knitting tent and take pleasure in the purses, or learn how to knit for the first time ever with our knitting tutor Madelaine who'll be showing you how to knit a bag to carry your festival essentials in.
Sorting out your festive fashion is an important aspect of your festival experience. And nothing says chic and carefree more than your own hippy headband. (as modelled here by Misha Barton).
Wanna' bang your own drums, strum your own ukelele or shake your thang?
You need a musical instrument - any not any old kind. Something made by your fair hands in our 'instrument' workshop. (Image Tip Junkie).
All this plus cutting, sticking and colouring in at our famous Collage Corner... for free!
There's no reason to miss it!
Hope to see you there,
