Meet & Make is a monthly invitation to ''make time for making" in our busy lives.
On offer this month, at no cost, is the chance to sit and relax with the restorative craft of hand sewing, using beads. You can create adornments for clothes, like a patch that can be sewn on. They are also a sweet way to personalise a thank you note or greeting card with a keepsake.
I couldn't resist making a bee to represent the Bees Of Streatham Cemetery as my first go:
Another option is to use beads to create designs straight onto clothes, something like this:
This idea for this featured craft came from Helen who has been inspired by 70s style beading adornment.
Tools, materials and inspiration to make something special by hand are provide free of charge.
The following equipment will be provided but if you have extras it would be useful to bring them along.*Embroidery rings
*Clothes to adorn
April also brings a new addition to Meet & Make - the Sewing Surgery.
You can bring any sewing project along to Sprout for advice on how to start, the next steps or even just the time and space to work on it and get it done.
Like replacing the worn out collar on a jacket for instance:
All free, spare change donations for Sprout are welcomed on the night. Contact Jeni on email@example.com for info
