Christmas Spirit in Walthamstow
We love the Christmas spirit in Walthamstow and neighbouring towns and that’s why so many first time buyers and families are choosing these amazing areas. We have put together our favourite events for you to join in with during the festive season of 2017.
Create your Christmas Jumper at a Festive Themed Workshop
18th Nov 2017, 12:00 – 15:00
St Peter & St Paul Church Hall, The Green, Chingford, E4 7EN
Join in with the festive spirit by making your own Christmas Jumper or party in a festive workshop using hand created and machine sewing and embellishing techniques. Simply bring along a plan jumper or outfit you have no use for or pick some up from the local charity shop, either way you will create a truly unique piece which can be fun to wear on Christmas day.
The workshop will be managed by the wonderful Barley Massey from Fabrications in Hackney who can also tutor you to love your clothes for longer with simple repair and reuse techniques.
Positions offered to 18+ and 16 to 18 year olds welcome when accompanied by an adult.
