Crafty / Creative things to do in London in May

Hi gang! Here’s my round-up of crafty / creative things to do in London this May. Plenty of events and workshops occurring as always. Why not give them a go, and let me know how you get on!


Crafty Fox Market – Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May 2016 (11am – 5pm) – FREE entry

I’m a big fan of the Crafty Fox Markets which bring together hundreds of designer / makers and artists over two days to showcase their work and sell their wares. This one, guest curated by Charlotte Abrahams (design writer, author and curator) takes us back to the CFM’s original home at the Dogstar in Brixton, and there is a different line-up each day. Not only does this make it the perfect shopping destination for unique handmade jewellery, ceramics, prints, gifts and cards, but you can also tuck in to tea and cake in the Tea’s Knees team room, as well as some drop-in craft workshops.

Workshop – I Make Knots necklace workshop: Using fabric yarn and knitting needles, I Make Knots will show you how to knit a chic and unique necklace that’s sure to brighten up any outfit. Pick two colours, and with our knot know how, you’ll be on your way before you even know it. £7 drop-in.

Workshop – Make a Pajaki (traditional Polish) Chandelier: Join Bobbin and Bow and make a traditional Polish Pajaki Chandelier. Whole day workshop (11-5), £50. Pre-booking required, visit www.bobbinandbow.com to book a slot, places are limited so don’t miss out!
