Getting Crafty with Craftenhagen

In case you missed a previous post about the adult crafting group, Craftenhagen, that I run, I thought I’d post an updated one

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.55044926-4A6B-4A57-9BDA-E88882AFEABC

We meet monthly in a community room in Nordhavn 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 (sometimes equipment you get to take home so you can do more) and some light snacks and non alcoholic drinks.

We have a Facebook page where you can join the next event and there are two more dates booked to take us up to the end of the year. We have two Christmas based projects for the next two meeting.

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 page to find out more. One thing I ask is please only sign up (and leave yourself signed up if your plans change) if you seriously intend on coming along.

The next two events are November 15th (details here) when we’ll be making decoration such as the ones above and then another Christmas related project on December 6th

  1. Oh, I miss it so much Melanie! But it just didn’t work for me after becoming a mama and now we have moved to Southern Sealand.
    I hope it’s okay that I’m still a member in the facebook group. Soon my daugther is old enough for the Craftenkids so I hope to be able to take me with her some time, even though we have to drive a bit.
    And I’m getting so inspired to see what you guys are making even though I’m not able to attend myself.
    Hugs xx
