Crafty Pint Monday evening workshops at Ben’s Canteen.

Our evening workshops take place the first Monday of the month at Ben’s Canteen from 7pm to 10pm.  We have some exciting events planned for 2013 and are very excited to be at the very fabulous Ben’s Canteen, on St John’s Hill, just a hop and skip up the road from Clapham Junction.  Ben is a big fan of Etsy and all things handmade, reflected in the decor of his very lovely cafe-bar serving delicious coffee, yummy food, and a decadent range of gin! You can also spy vintage finds from our local emporium of  cool collectables – Colporter. When we visited, we sampled the ginger beer which was very fine, and enjoyed sipping our drinks to a pretty good sound track as well. To find out more or to book a place, please email Gillian at Crafty Pint.

7th January – Calendar making

Make a collage for each month from our collection of vintage books and magazines, rubber stamps, embossing and ephemera. Using blank calendar templates, create a beautiful and personal journal for the year. Expect lots of cutting, sticking, glitter and stamping!  Choose your favourite colours, recipes, stories and slogans, add pictures, stamps, stickers and paint. Get messy and organised for 2013!
4th February – Love tokens
Design and stitch love tokens for your sweethearts and best friends. Learn easy and fancy embroidery techniques to mix and match with sweet valentines fabrics, beads and buttons.  Make love tokens to turn into wall hangings, accessories, cards and lavender bags.
4th March – Cute easter egg cosies
Take inspiration from our vintage easter card collection to design and make your own set of super cute easter egg cosies. Think fluffy bunnies, lambs and chicks or urban foxes and cats.  Learn how to turn your designs into cute appliques and functional homewares and make original and fabulous easter gifts and decorations.
8th April – Wardrobe remake
Add some spring to your wardrobe with our accessories workshop. Make cute collars, brooches and patches to adorn and spruce your winter outfits ready for Spring.
These three-hour workshops costs just £20 and include all materials.  Please email Gillian at Crafty Pint if you want to reserve a place.
