Crafternoon - 28th November

Crafty Creature’s Christmas Extravaganza


ADDRESS: St Olave’s Church Hall

TIME: 1 – 5pm

On the 28th November the Crafty Creatures return with an all day Christmas craftathon at St Olave’s church hall, East London.

With Christmas in the air and the mulled wine bubbling on the stove we will be turning our hand to making material advent calendars that can be used for many festive seasons to come. There will be the opportunity to whip up your own Christmas decorations and wrapping paper so that when it comes to turning your home into a Christmas grotto you are fully prepared. Our saucy cross stitch team will also be providing jolly designs to get crafty with.

Whilst you get stuck into Yuletide crafting Santa’s little helpers will serve up a selection of cakes (including mince pies), savouries and drinks, and our house band will treat you to your favourite Christmassy carols. All you need to bring is a hungry belly, a well loved t shirt – that you don’t mind cutting up and recycling – and a generous dollop of Christmas cheer.

We have an extra special guest at this crafternoon to make the festive proceedings official. Santa will be dropping by (minus his reindeers) to grant Christmas wishes and hand out presents to those who have been well behaved this year. With a venue that is situated close to Liverpool Street and Tower Bridge, a fun afternoon of craft and cake couldn’t be more convenient.

The Crafty Creatures fundraise for the charity FairPensions, who campaign for your pension to be invested responsibly and ethically. All profits will go to them – so while you’re stitching your advent calendar you can be happy in the knowledge you’re helping to make the world a better place. So come on down to crafternoon and let out your inner crafty creature!

Advent Calendar

With crafternoon approaching we thought we'd turn our hand to making an advent calendar, which is the main craft for the forthcoming crafternoon on the 28th November. As you can see our is not the most christmassy but, hey, we're open to all kinds of interpretations on the advent calendar.
On the day we will be handing out most of the necessary components for anyone to be able to make a advent calendar. It would be great if anyone has any christmassy fabric, be that t- shirts or PJs, at home that they want to get rid of they could bring it along.
More info about crafternoon is coming soon. See you on the 28th November.
