Fright Night Halloween Craft Night Highlights!

Ghouls, ghosts & glitter! Our Halloween Craft Night was spookytastic.
Here are some of our favourite moments expertly snapped up by Greg McKinney...

There were also two sad moments this month. We had to say farewell to two of our favourite Make Escapers : (

First up, Lucky aka Farcreazy Farid, a super talent illustrator and graphic novel artist who was one of our most popular workshopper leaders who is moving to Kenya!

And finally The One And Only Al. 

There would have been no Make Escape without Al, he's the one who answered our email when we first asked the Attic if we could host the Make Escape there and he's looked after us since. 
We'll miss you Al!

Like the look of our pics? Make sure you come along and be part of our next craft event:
Narnia Night
Tuesday 29th November 2013, 7.30pm,
Hackney Attic, 270 Mare Street, Hackney, London, E8

It's our last craft night of the year so don't miss it - we'll be crafting wintering/xmassy goodness.

Join our Pic-Knit

We're supporting the UK Hand Knitting Association's new Pic-Knit campaign that encourages people to get together, socialise and knit. 

Our in-house experts from the London Knaughty Knitters will be showing you (even if you're a newbie who has never picked up the needles before) how to knit a ghost or bring your own projects along to work on.

If none of the above tale your fancy then head over to the Collage Corner where we have tonnes of crafty materials in which you can go cut and paste crazy.
