We’re very excited to be kicking off the Seven Dials ‘Arts and Craftmanship Month’, with a jampacked weekend full of craft workshops, pop-up stalls, photography and more.
We’ll be showing off our lovely new space in Seven Dials with a hand-picked selection of workshops from our Experiences line-up, including candle making with McKinley and Paget, top floristry tips from the lovely Lizzie Thorne and pom pom making for the little ones with Karen Hsu from Pom Pom Factory.
On the art side of things, John Haynes will be returning to Carousel with a brand new exhibition running for the full month of September – a rare and wonderful insight into his time as official photographer at the Royal Court Theatre.
Spaces are limited for the ticketed workshops (detailed below) but feel free to pop by over the weekend, there will be drop-in workshops throughout the day (from mini floral headpieces to creating your own essential oil room-mist) as well as the chance to buy a little something from each of the pop-up stalls while checking out John Haynes’ exhibition.
See you there!
