This Meetup was set up in 2014 by Sonia, with the aim of helping us busy Londoners uncover their creative talents. It's a chance to try out crafting for the first time, if you're already a crafter, it's a great place to come along and meet crafty people to hang out with.
Sonia is also the Founder of London Craft Club, a creative business which runs craft classes and workshops at lots of different venues around London. London Craft Club (https://londoncraftclub.co.uk/) sponsors this Meetup by providing materials, organising the venue and making sure there is someone to host it at least once a month. Find out more about it here :www.londoncraftclub.co.uk.
Who comes to London Craft Club Meetups?
Our Meetup members vary from people who've never crafted before but want to get started, to people who are great at one craft but might like to share skills and learn new crafts. This is a grown-ups only Meetup! We do love kids, but many of our members come here to get some "me-time" away from little ones, so 16 years and over please!
What kind of Meetups do we hold?
CRAFT LIFE is our longest running Meetup. It used to be called Coffee and Craft and maybe a Cocktail but CRAFT LIFE is so much easier! London Craft Club (https://londoncraftclub.co.uk/) supplies free materials, and a basic project to try, but you're welcome to bring your own craft that you're working on, lots of people do. There's always someone from London Craft Club hosting it, and although it's not a taught session, they'll show you how to do the free craft and get everyone settled in. They run once a month at our headquarters in Bedford Square, (about 2 minutes walk from our old venue Saucer andSpritz). Sometimes we'll charge up to £2 to cover teas and coffee which is unlimited
Workshops, talks and parties
We regularly hold workshops talks and parties at our venue in Bedford Square, just check out www.londoncraftclub.co.uk to see all the details if they aren't here on Meetup.
