London Craft Dates For Your Diary

Over the next few months there are some fantastic crafty events taking place in London. Below are my top three spanning October and November. I’ll be going – hope to see you there!


The Crafternoon Cabaret Club

When: 24 October 2015 (2-4pm)

Where: The Book Club, 100 – 106 Leonard Street, London

What: The Crafternoon Cabaret Club host a different craft workshop every month. Next weekend, we’ll be making Macrame Hanging Planters to display indoor succulents. As well as taking part in the workshop, each event introduces a cabaret artist, in this case Ukulele songstress Jo Stephenson.

Price: £15 with all materials included. Click here to book.


The BUST London Christmas Craftacular

When: 22 November 2015 (11am – 5pm)

Where: York Hall, Bethnal Green, London

What: The BUST Christmas Craftacular features over 70 vendors, as well as a Drink Shop & Do pop-up cafe, DJs and your choice of DIY workshops. I’ve signed up to weave a Mini Wall Hanging with peas and needles and Amy Ilic (£5),  but you can also make a geometric Christmas decoration with bobbin & bow (free), arm-knit a snood with Wool and the Gang (£20), create a sweater bobble hat with Traid (£5), customise a Christmas jumper with Fabrications (Free), and stitch your signature on Craftivist Collective’s Giant Petition (Free). Check out the website for the full schedule.

Price: £3 entrance, plus workshop costs.


The Holiday Renegade Craft Fair

When: 7-8 November 2015 (11am – 6pm)

Where: Old Truman Brewery, 81 Brick Lane, London

What: The Renegade Craft Fair is a curated marketplace of indie-craft goods which showcases the best and brightest talent from the modern Maker community. I attended the fair last year, and had a great time browsing the stalls, and being inspired by an array of makers. Not only will this event provide great inspiration for festive gift-giving, you can also participate in DIY workshops at a small cost.

Price: Free to attend, plus workshop costs.


Stay tuned to see how I get on at the weaving and macrame workshops!
