Roll up, roll up, ladies and gentlemen. Hot off the presses, TOG will be having it’s first, yes first, Craft Night! This coming Tuesday (13th July) from 7pm ’til late. The event is free, yes, won’t cost you a dime, and is open to non-members, so bring one, bring all!
Inside the ‘Classroom’ (second door on the left) in the larger, better, whiter, newest TOG premises you’ll find plenty to amaze and astound the most jaded modernist. Any form of craft is welcome, from textile crafts, to paper crafts, to anything else you care for. Specifically on the agenda is Drawing, Painting, Knitting, Sewing, Embroidery, and that’s just the ones we know for sure. Whether you’re into Woodwork, Metalwork, making shoes, making jewelery, making candles, making bags, making clothes, okay, so, simply making ANYTHING, we’d like to see you there. Bring whatever you’re working on, get some more done, or simply show-off a little.
We’ll have sewing machines (and even an overlocker/or serger to our North American friends) set up, and plenty of thread on offer, so if sewing is your thing we have you covered. We mightn’t have other specifics available, but that’s all the more reason to come along. Come, tell us what you’re into, and if we have the numbers we’ll set about sorting you out. One thing we have for sure is space, and a shared desire to make and remake.
Speaking of numbers, the ‘Classroom’ only holds about 12 people, so that’s our limit. If you’re interested in coming along and meeting other crafters then please send us an email below.
Also, if you’re just looking for inspiration or maybe for a new hobby to pick up, come take a look. There will be some books, and all ten issues of Craft: Magazine around for flicking through. Never know what might spark your interest! This event is a one-time only affair, so make sure you don’t miss out. (*whispers* If we get the numbers we will see about a more regular event, but for now it’s just the one.)
We’re sorry, but we’re full! No spaces left for Tuesday. Let us know if you’re disappointed and that will encourage us to hold another one soon.
If you want to just come and have a look around and hang out that should be okay as there’s a Social Night on in the space as well, so plenty of people to talk to. But please, still let us know that you’re coming, we don’t want anyone getting lost!
