I’m not sure I have ever mentioned here on my blog about the adult crafting group, Craftenhagen, that I run. I took the organising of the monthly crafting meet up from Valentina Fussell, who hosted it in her home, after she and her family returned to the US a couple of years ago. I love the group as it means that we can try different crafts without having to make the commitment to buying a lot of materials if the craft isn’t for you. It really doesn’t matter if you have done the craft before or even if you are particularly good at it, it’s just fun to try something new and spend an evening chatting with people whilst being creative.
We meet monthly in a community room in Vesterbro and examples of crafts we have tried over the last twelve months include Lino printing, shaker cards , fancy pom poms, decoupage Easter eggs and sugar paste flowers to name just a few.
The group is not run for profit and the price covers all the materials (sometime equipment you get to take home so you can do more) and some light snacks and non alcoholic drinks.
We have a Facebook group where you can join the next event and there are two more dates booked to take us up to the summer break. In May we’ll be making macrame key rings. Often the craft is suggested and then demonstrated by one of the members and sometimes we have an expert crafter come in and show us their passion.
We’d love to see some more people come along so if it sounds interesting pop over to the Facebook group to find out more.
