Workshops are Back!

It’s a lovely feeling walking away from a workshop chuffed with a new creation, so we’re reintroducing a workshop programme for Autumn Winter 23/24. Not only are workshops a great way to meet new people and catch up with old friends, but making can help you to forget everything and feel calm. If finances are a barrier for you at the moment, please get in touch as we have a few complimentary first come, first served spots!

Necklace Charm Making workshops.

An excellent opportunity to create something for yourself or a loved one. Everybody loves a shiny trinket. Even more true – everybody loves being made a shiny trinket! One of these under the tree? Yes please!

Come along and learn how to…
*Design and draw a small necklace charm, taking into consideration how the charm will be weighted when hanging from a chain / some ribbon.

*Set up and use a piercing saw and bench peg.

*File and sand the edges of your charm to create a smooth finish.

A Collaborative Effort

Our friends at Creative Wick and the Lord Napier Star are helping with the relaunch of these workshops.
Creative Wick are a longstanding cultural organisation based in Hackney Wick, East London. The Wick Magazine aims to bridge the gap between new developments in the area and local creative communities. They also help to promote happenings nearby, particularly on a Wednesday. Sign up to their mailing list for more info.
The Lord Napier Star, the only boozer in Hackney Wick have very kindly offered to host these workshops for us on the 3rd Wednesday of every month between 6.30 and 8.30pm into the new year. They serve delicious food and beverages. We ask that you buy at least one soft drink to say thanks to the venue.

Lily has experience working with the WI with groups of 40 women plus. She has hosted dozens of jewellery making hen parties of mixed ages and abilities and with organisations such as the Fashion and Textile Museum, School for Creative Startups at Somerset House and Vivo Barefoot.
