The Make Lounge invites busy Londoners to “meet people and make stuff”. Journalist Jennifer Pirtle felt there was no place to relax, socialize with drinks as you sew, knit, make jewelry or paper crafts. Seeing the need for a creative break after a day at the office, she started to arrange crafting gatherings for beginners, intermediate and advanced adults and kids.

It is much like The Church of Craft, an international network of crafters with chapters reaching from Manchester to Los Angeles. While the Church of Craft meet at a local café or restaurant, described as “a casual drop in affair, come any time, bring anyone, bring anything you are working in or just come & check out what everyone else is up to”, The Make Lounge has its own space where they host parties, other events and offer workshops in e.g.  “Survival Sewing” or “Knockout Knickers”.

Combining the social After Work concept with learning new skills in crafting, doing something different and bringing home self-made goods sounds all good to us.
