Our craft workshops are really awesome for all sorts of parties.

I mean who wouldn’t want a Frida Kahlo headdress hen party or a tapestry weaving birthday bash? And nothing quite breaks the ice with your colleagues like sitting side-by-side embroidering genitals.

So whether you’re team building or baby-making we will have something that will make that icing on your party cake look like a disappointing heap of congealed sugar – because after one of our parties, everything else will suck!

Have a look through our scroll down menu at what classes we have available – you can do any of them for any type of party, it’s your party, not ours, even though we’ll like totally be there hosting it.

Have an idea for a craft party that we haven’t listed? Ask us about it! We’re super good at figuring out how to make things and then teach them so if there’s something special you’ve got in mind for your party let’s make it happen!

Each party must have a minimum of 6 guests, in the studio we can accommodate 25 people. If you have a bigger group we can always come to you or another location.

Prices are on request.

Available Parties

Tapestry Weaving

In this party we will show you how to set your loom with a suitable warp and teach you essential tapestry stitches. Explore and experiment with texture, colour, shape and form with our beautiful selection of yarns.

Our looms are crafted by a local joiner especially for The London Loom. The loom is yours to take at the end of the class, along with your comb and needle so you can practice your new hobby at home.

Iron-on patches

Hey patches! That’s my gangster name. It’s Chez for short – see what I did there? Clever.

So the 90s called, they want their iron-on unicorn patches back. But fret not because we’ve come up with a genius new class for you. Now we will walk you through how to embroider your own design and prep it for some embellishing your favourite mum jeans magic.

This is a 2.5 hour class and you should have a whole little patch finished by the end of the night. Make sure you prep some designs that you’d like to try out before the class, we’d like to get straight into stitching when you get here (make sure your design is no bigger than 5cm x 5cm)

Embryoidery

Do you or someone you know have a tiny human growing inside you? Well, that’s just magic and you should totally celebrate it. What better way to celebrate and welcome this tiny human than by drinking virgin booze cups and embroidering the wonders of pregnancy! That’s right, our Embryoidery classes will have you stitching up sonograms and baby-stuffed wombs like a pro.

  • Perfect for baby showers
  • Adults only

Frida Kahlo Headdress

This class is about creating your own unique Mexicana headdress. Taking inspiration from Frida’ s signature style and design, you’ll make a fun textural piece to wear in your hair. Get playful and experiment with pompoms, yarn braiding and cactus customisation.

Let’s play some hot Latina tunes and crack the tequila out! Draw on your darkest unibrow and practice your communist manifesto with your secret Russian lover, or just come on down to The London Loom and get your Frida craft on.

This class includes all materials to make your own Frida headdress.

Embroidery

Always wanted a tattoo of your partner’s name but are too afraid of the commitment? Just learn to embroider and you can have ‘Ronnie 4 Devast8’ stitched into a hoop on the wall instead.

This is a beginners class so we will teach you all the basics from a running stitch to a french knot. You are free to decide on the theme of this party workshop, so come prepared with some designs that you’d like to stitch up and we’ll get you stitching and hitching and other rhyming things in no time.

Pom pom party

Look, all I really ought to say here is pom poms. It’s undeniable, pom poms are a dream. Make them multicoloured, plain, make it look like a planet – whatevs people they’re just F U N. This workshop is really relaxed, it’s a perfect choice for a mixed age or mixed ability group, it’s pretty hard to get these thangs looking anything but awesome.

This workshop lasts for two hours and will give you enough time to make a garland big enough to drape over the mantelpiece or sculpt whoever or whatever out of pompoms – or just make loads of pompoms!

Pom pom body sculpture

Let’s get physical – with pom poms! So, OK we already know that pom poms are magic. But did you know that you can sculpt them? Think Edward Scissorhands but pom poms instead of foliage and your regular human hands instead of scissors – it’s like that. Also, this is a sexy adult only class and we’re all about making these pom poms look as explicit as we feel. TMI, sorry.

Pom pom penises for everyone!

Weaving onto embroidery hoops

A quicker way to make a piece of woven wall art. Using an embroidery hoop we’ll show you a speedy, miniature version of out tapestry class and teach you all the basic stitches you need to make a colourful and tactile hanging for your home.

We’ll be weaving on top of a piece of cotton and so this class will also show you how to customise your clothing with weaving, we do it on our denim jackets all the time and suggest you do too

Poi

 

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 a set of your own poi (and some great kiwi tunes to get you going)

Monster making

Ahh! A monster. Yeah, scary. This is an ace class for kids as they learn the basics of hand-sewing and constructing a 3d object. We have all sorts of awesome things for them to put together – squeakers, feathers, goggly eyes and a heck ton of beads and yarn for them to make their ultimate monster.

Let’s play Monster Mash and get terrified.

Pom pom headbands

This one is a bit of a doozy for festivals goers and raucous groups alike. POM POM HEADBANDS ARE THE GREATEST PARTY CRAFT EVER, did you know that? Because it’s true, I mean all the crafts we do are the greatest but this is one is a failsafe workshop to get all your partygoers making something simple, satisfying, fun as all heck and will always look amazing, regardless of the size and shape of your mate’s heads.

Membroidery

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!

Giant Loom

This workshop is very special to The London Loom as it’s a workshop we have mostly done for community and charity mixed ability groups. In this workshop you’ll work together on one big loom to create a giant tapestry as a group. These always look beautiful and can be a wonderful addition to a work space or a wall at home.

This can also be amazing as a hen party as the bride will get to keep the tapestry as a momento and we can put it together in any colour you prefer – we can even use tie-dyed yarns or neon ribbons (which is our personal preference obviously).

This is also really great for kids parties as kids of any age can join in.

We’ve taught this workshop in parks, museums, cafes and other public spaces so we can really suit it to whoever you want to weave with.

Sashiko

Sashiko in Japanese literally means little stabs, so it might be our new rap name. We’re hip right? It’s a decorative stitching technique from Japan (our favourite place after our studio and New Zealand), it was originally invented to reinforce wear and tear in clothing but the stitches – which are usually indigo, white and red – have such a distinctive and gorgeous look that it is now mostly used to decorate.

In this workshop you’ll make a cushion or pouch with a traditional Sashiko design.

We have these perspex beads made specifically for this class because it looks so cool that we can’t stop ourselves and neither should you!
