Make Do Mend are happy to come to your home or office to teach classes including knitting, sewing, crochet and cake decoration. Their launch party took place at 40 winks in Stepney, a unique venue. Owned by interior designer David Carter, it's known for hosting nights such as Vintage Secret's Tart parties and Spoken Ink's Bedtime Stories. Make Do Mend will source special locations like this for you, if you want, great for girls' nights in, or perhaps very grown-up hen-nights. Their next yarny workshops are taking place in the refined but really very appropriate surroundings of High Tea in Highgate. They supply all materials and equipment, including yarn and hooks or needles and classes start from approximately £30.
We settled in downstairs in 40winks to join Mae Len for cake decorating, rolling out fondant icing to make 3D motifs to perch on top of already iced cupcakes. Quick, and with the amount of glitter and edible glue used, dirty. Other crafty guests made Christmas tree baubles from felt and fabric, guided by Claire and Bee who've both taught all over the south east. They're very astute about the little touches and presented everyone with a mini sewing kit so we can continue on with our crafty endeavours at home. It's going to prove to be another very welcome addition to the London crafting scene.
