The festival season may be drawing to a close, but fear not, the Crafty Creatures are here to help combat those end-of-the-summer blues with another round of imaginative eco-friendly monster-making and cross-stitching, fuelled by a mouth-watering selection of tempting treats and a never-ending supply of tea.

The Crafty Creatures love recycling and we encourage you to bring along a much loved t-shirt, to cut up and transform into your very own cloth creature! Whether you end up producing a material manifestation of your alter-ego, or perhaps a handy voodoo doll of your boss, whilst your creative juices are flowing our lovely hosts and hostesses will be at your beck and call to guide you in your crafting as well as serve up a selection of homemade cakes and hot drinks.

The Crafty Creatures fundraise for the Spitalfields Crypt Trust, a small but vital local charity that offers a range of high-quality support, rehabilitation and training services to people facing problems of homelessness, addiction or social isolation. ALL PROFITS will go to them – so while you’re crafting away you can be happy in the knowledge that you’re helping a very worthy cause.

So come along to the lovely Hanbury Hall, conveniently located just off Brick Lane and 5 minutes from Liverpool Street and Shoreditch High Street, for a fun afternoon of crafts, cakes and feel-good activity. Go on – let your inner Crafty Creature roar!
