Brooches made with Fabric Nation

More textile brooch making opportunities coming up with Seaside Sisters, as we’re running some Crafty Pint workshops in both North and South London.

Crafty Pint is a collective of local designer makers, encouraging people to shop local and teaching new craft skills in affordable and informal settings.

In this workshop we’ll be taking it a bit further than our drop in flower brooch sessions. You’ll be able to make several pretty styles of textile brooch over three hours. All the designs are deceptively simple to sew, and you can choose whatever you like from our stash of vintage, upcycled and contemporary fabrics. Use them to brighten clothes or bags, wear as a hair accessory or corsage, or make them as gifts for lucky friends or family.

As the Crafty Pint venues are pubs you’ll be able to sip drinks from the bar, have a chat and relax while making lovely things. Suitable for all levels, whether you’re already handy with a needle and thread or have never sewn before.

Crafty Pint South workshops take place on the first Saturday of each month at the Tooting Tram & Social, 46 Mitcham Lane, Tooting, SW17 9NA, 2pm – 5pm

Crafty Pint North is at The Stapleton Tavern, 2 – 4 Crouch Hill, London N4 4AU (Stroud Green/ Finsbury Park), 2pm – 5pm.

You can turn up on the day, but pre-booked places will receive a free gift. For some courses there will be a limit to the number of places, due to materials and space available.
