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 Nights 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.
27th September - 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 firstname.lastname@example.org with your enquiry and we’ll sort you out.
25th October - Arm knitted fatso blanket
We’ve got a lovely host teacher in for this class, introducing Jessica Woollard! With such a wooly name is it any wonder she loves the wool? I mean we do and our surnames are Dennis and Kletz, more detective names than weavers but, you know.
In this extreme knitting class you will learn to arm knit with gorgeous merino and acrylic blend yarn in the colour of your choice to make a chunky and warm winter blanket for your home! Or car or bench! Whatever.
In this three hour long class you will learn how to cast on and off your blanket and how to comfortably knit with your arms to create a big, squishy, yummy blanket.
Take a look at our colour chart below and when you put your booking through at the checkout make a note of the number of the colour you want to use.
This 3 hour class is £100 and includes all the yarn you need to a knit a whole blanket.
23rd November - Calligraphy with Suzie
Suzie Dicker, founder of the luxury London stationery and leather goods brand A L’aise will be teaching you the art of Modern Calligraphy.
