Highgate Hill, London
The fantastic craft author and blogger, Nicolette Lafonseca wants to help you Christmas up your jumper at this festive craft-up!
Nicolette is the creative mind behind Archie and the Rug, a gorgeous blog where you'll find home, craft, food and more.
Nicolette's latest project Make Your Own Christmas Jumper: 20 Fun and Easy Projects to Make in a Day (Even If You Can't Knit!) is a must have for all proper festive fashionistas.
Once the sort of embarrassing gift you'd only get from your granny, Christmas knitwear has gone well and truly mainstream. Whether it's for charity, the office party, the kids' nativity or the big day itself, an ironic Christmas jumper is the only thing to be seen in. With the trend growing each year, it's increasingly difficult to be original...
.....unless, of course, you make your own.
Join Nicolette and London Craft Club for this fast fun and festive session! You bring the jumper, they'll bring the crazy! Taking Nicolette's book as inspiration, you can Christmas yourself up to the nines! Tinsel, felt, fleece, baubles, pom poms, rickrack, ribbon - throw yourself into the Christmas haberdashery stash and go crazy!
So what are you waiting for? It's never too early to get the Christmas spirit on, especially if you're getting creative and making it by hand!
The event will take place at the wonderful Duckpond Craft Market, Highgate's loveliest artisan shopping experience. Get there early so you can pick up some genuinely thoughtful and unusual gifts direct from the makers, then get craft crazy with drop-in paper decoration making before embracing the joy of Christmas jumpers!
