We have some fabulous workshops lined up for May, including knitting phone covers with Alex and upcycled jewellery with Jeni and our Wandsworth Festival workshops.

Upcycled jewellery with Jeni – 8th May at The Railway

Our super popular upcycled Jewellery Workshop returns to Crafty Pint for it’s first outing in Streatham! We will be turning unloved and broken trinkets into fabulous jewellery with talented local upcycler and artist, Jeni Walker who ran our sell out workshop at last years Xmas Pint.
At this workshop, we will make earrings, a bracelet, a necklace or a brooch from our amazing collection of discarded jewels.  Silver plated earring hooks and various stringing materials will be provided as well as our stash of pre-loved jewellery, beads and findings.  You will leave the workshop having made something from nothing!  You can even bring along your own unused and broken jewellery if you want, to make something particularly personal and cool. For inspiration have a look at what everyone  made at our last upcycled jewellery workshop.

The workshops cost £20 and all materials and tutors are included.  We will provide tons of materials to choose from as well as lots of one-to-one help and demonstrations. Places will be limited to ensure lots of one to one help is on hand.  Suitable for beginners, no experience needed!  Please email Gillian at Crafty Pint to reserve a place.

Upcycled Jewellery Workshop

Wednesday 8th May, from 7.30pm.

The Railway, 2 Greyhound Lane SW16 5SD, opposite Streatham Common Station.

These workshops are very popular, so we have added some extra June dates at our other venues as well!  So if you can’t make Wednesday’s workshop, you came along to Crafty Pint at the Gorringe Park in Tooting or Ben’s Canteen in Clapham / Battersea.
