Hillary’s Crafternoon at Drink, Shop, Do

I’ve wanted to go to Drink, Shop, Do for ages. It’s a great place for doing crafts, playing board games and a good night out – what more could you want?

There was a wide selection of cakes, and a gluten free chocolate orange one for me, so I was very excited!

We used some of these to decorate our boxes with.

Hillary's Crafternoon, Jewelry Box Making, Drink Shop DoAfter grappling with pins, glue guns and reels and reels of ribbon, it became very apparent to me that I am not at all blessed with crafting skills. While everyone else around me began to create beautiful boxes, mine looked totally amateurish! (Although the lovely people at Hillary’s did include a photo of it on their blog!) Luckily, I was able to munch and chat the afternoon away with the lovely Chynna and Olivia, who I was sat next to.

I absolutely love contemporary design and crafts, so this is right up my street!  This year, they’ll be presenting the very best and most original designers in this country and beyond, exhibiting and selling their work direct to the public. Everything from ceramics, silver, woodwork, mosaic art, textile design, furniture, blown glass and more. You can find a full list of exhibitors here!

SarahPulvertaftNecklaceI’m really looking forward to it, and am hoping to pick up a few unique pieces for my flat, and maybe a few little gifts for Christmas (too early?) too….

Made London – The Design and Craft Fair on from the 22nd until the 25th of October, at One Marylebone, London, NW1 4AQ. It’s open from 11.00 – 17.00 (I’m going to the open night from 6pm), and is £10 on the door (under 14s go free!)
