If you’re like most busy people, you probably don’t get much opportunity to make things. (A Marks & Spencer ready meal doesn’t count.) Busy schedules, a real (or perceived) lack of skills, and not enough space to store tools and supplies can make taking a creative break seem nearly impossible.

Enter The Make Lounge, a fun, friendly place where you can ‘meet people and make stuff,’ through evening and weekend contemporary craft workshops.

  • Survival sewing

  • Knockout knickers

  • Reversible sling handbag

  • Creative alterations
