Monday evening I was lucky enough to bag a ticket to the Tea and Crafting Spooktacular Crafty Catch Up. I love Tea and Crafting – a gorgeous hub for craft lessons and classes in Camden – where you can learn a new skill, meet friendly like-minded people and sip a hot mug of tea whilst doing so 🙂 Jane and the others who teach with her are a lovely bunch of people, super patient (I mean they’ve managed to teach me to knit AND crochet which I’m sure took some patience!) and most of all are keen to share their creative talents – just like Albert says.
And so I jumped on a bus, walked up the gorgeous stairs *stopping for a #fwis trainer shot as you do* and had a great evening of crafting, prosecco and some surprisingly deep conversation that covered all sorts of subjects.
Zoe from Ladybird Likes ran our Halloween Catch up – we had a spooky (ish) and very random playlist, prosecco with raspberry syrup served up in the cutest Halloween theme glasses, plenty of cupcakes and a selection of things to try such as colouring in Mexican Day of the Dead Skulls and porcelain painting.
I loved the porcelain painting although decided to paint something non-halloween themed so that I could have it up on display all year round. I took inspiration from my very Cath Kidston-esque surroundings and painting some *purposefully* wonky and colourful stars on my bowl. There was a mini competition for the best bowl (I came second yay me!) and the winner won a gorgeous Mexican Candy Skull from Ladybird Likes – i’m totally not jealous at all…. ahem….
I had such a great time that I’ve already got my name down for the Christmas event – it’s a cheap, creative and really fun way to spend an evening in London 🙂
