Great news...we have a venue and a date! Our first D.I.Y. craft night will take place in the Castle pub in Walthamstow Village during the annual E17 Art Trail.
We've pencilled in the 10th of September with Roger the lovely pub landlord as the date for our craft extravaganza.
DJ's are at the ready (Thank you Jake at Village Vinyl), craft projects are being organised and all in all it's coming together pretty well. We're hoping that it'll be the first of many!
The theme for this first one is "hearts for the heartless" and we're getting our over active imaginations working on a few interesting projects for people to get their hands on and hopefully fuel a new found love of making your own art and craft... hence the D.I.Y. craft title.
It's so inspiring to hear people say " I never knew I could actually make something". Hey we beleive that art and craft should be accessible to everyone and that's why we want to create events like these.
There's a knitted heart, an anatomical heart brooch and more to choose form. We're still on the hunt for other related projects so if know of any one,or you yourself could present a project or spare a few hours to tutor one of the crafts then let us know.
Email your ideas, projects etc to firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep it crafty!
PS Other craft market dates for September are being organised so keep them peepers peeled!!!
