UK Edition: Etsy Craft Party at The Make Lounge

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Join us at the London leg of a worldwide celebration of creativity, the Etsy Craft Party, hosted by super stylish crafting venue The Make Lounge on Friday, June 18, 2010 (which happens to be Etsy’s birthday!). We’ll have glass painting, cheery bunting, festive flowers and other simple projects on the go, but please feel free to bring along a portable craft such as knitting or crocheting.

The Make Lounge’s retail shop will be open from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. and Etsy Craft Party visitors will receive a 10% discount on any purchase made during that time.

So we can plan numbers, we need everyone to RSVP here. Tickets are £5 per person to help cover the crafting supplies and venue costs.

Here are the details…

When: Friday, June 18, 2010. 7:30 – 10:30 p.m.

Where: The Make Lounge (Venue 2) at 41-1/2 Barnsbury Street, London N1 1TY, halfway along Barnsbury Street between Upper Street and Liverpool Road (the retail shop is located just two minutes walk away at 49-51 Barnsbury Street).

How: RSVP here with a £5 donation to help cover the crafting supplies and venue costs. The venue is just a short walk from Highbury & Islington and Angel tubes, accessible by overland train, and on several major bus routes.

Who: You! And a slew of local artists and crafters.

What to Bring: A clear drinking glass or votive holder you wish to paint and some yummy nibbles to share with fellow crafters. Hint: Cakes and crafting go especially well together! Also feel free to bring a portable project that you’d like to work on during the evening.

Too far away from London? Not to worry! Etsy Craft Parties are happening simultaneously across the globe on the 18th, so search for a Craft Party near you and sign up here. If you don’t see one planned in your hood yet, feel free to organize your own. Your Craft Party can come to life any way that you dream up and can be hosted any day of the year!
