Hello you smart, whimsical, gorgeous things! There’s not much sweeter in life than rocking up to work in the morning and knowing all day long that you’ve got a sweet workshop or seat at a bloody fascinating talk booked in for the evening. So here we are with our late night at The London Loom series.
Scroll down for our list of class descriptions and dates – we’ll keep updating these as long as we’ve got something interesting to share with you…which will be forever…RIGHT?
Just so y’all know these classes are 18+ and BYOB. Beware when scrolling down this page as there is vast and glorious explicit craft based content…yum.
Let us know if you have any ideas for something you’d like to share as part of our late night series, sharing is caring humans and we want to get as many of you in on the action as we can! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas.
15th June - Embroider your member
Hey humans with varied and beautiful genitalia. Wouldn’t you like to celebrate those varied and beautiful differences? Wouldn’t you love to celebrate those varied and beautiful differences through the art of embroidery? “YES PLEASE!” I hear you cry! Well…guess what?…you can!
It’s important to us that this class is about two things;
1. Learning a new handskill
2. Being cool with what you got between those legs of yours, because what you got is great and you should celebrate it by immortalising it with thread and yarn!
We’ll teach you how to prep your embroidery hoop for a new project, show you some essential stitches to make awesome effects (which stitches are better for pubes…that sort of thing) and how to neatly finish your work off so it looks as professional as you’ll be at the end of the evening.
We’ll equip each of you with a hand mirror upon arrival for you to pop off to the loos and check yourself out for some creative inspiration. What’s that you say? You’d rather go off memory? Good for you! You’d rather search online? Totally your decision dude. You want to create an abstract vulva or scrotum from printed pictures? We will have some on hand. We’ve got you covered people!
Want to do this class with your friends for a private special event? We do that! Just email email@example.com with your enquiry and we’ll sort you out.
20th July - Poi Making
What the heck son is poi! The London Loom’s very own Kiwi co-director Brooke will show you! Poi is both the equipment and the performance art of swinging a tethered weight to make beautiful patterns in the air – and it’s bloody great for your wrists too. These beauties also happen to have a big old gorgeous tassel and braid and we’ll show you how to make the whole sodding thing. This Maori tradition will get you dancing and swinging like no other craft class has before. If you’re good you might even learn some Maori. So kia ora and all that jazz, let’s get poi-Ed.
This class includes all of the equipment and materials to make your own poi (and some great kiwi tunes to get you going)
