CRAFTmate – How does doing something creative make you feel?

CRAFTmate is here! Saturday 15 June, 11am – 4pm, Telegraph Hill Centre

Bringing people together to share the buzz that is so often built up when sitting and creating things with others….

How does doing something creative make you feel?

Hexagon shaped fabric patch with "lost in my own little world" stitched in black thread, spiralling into the centre.

We’re very excited about this project which we hope will grow and grow and help bring people together to share their thoughts and feelings about doing something creative. The idea is that we get our feelings down on hexagaon patches – stitched, printed, painted, or whatever you like! – then join them up with other CRAFTmates to create a huge patchwork conversation. Then we’ll tell the world how being creative makes us feel by exhibiting the growing patchwork in lots of venues across South London, starting mid-July, and sharing images of our messages on our Facebook page.

Take part

  • Make a patch: Use the instructions and tempate available here, or pick up a CRAFTmate kit from any of the many lovely local cafes, libraries or shops in the local area, or turn up to the CRAFTmate launch.
  • Join your patch: Bring your patch(es) to the CRAFTmate launch – details below. If you can’t come along on the day, email us for the postal address to send them to.
  • Join in the conversation: at the CRAFTmate launch, on our Facebook page, or on Twitter @CraftOnTheHill with #CRAFTmate.

Come to the launch on Saturday 15 June 2013, from 11am – 4pm, at the Telegraph Hill Centre. Bring your finished patch, or sit with us and stitch along – materials will be available, and all abilities are welcome.

Come along on 15 June to match up your words with everyone else. As always, there will be lovely homemade cake to buy and plenty of free tea & coffee. What better way to while away a Saturday?!!

Two hexagons on a sheet - one slightly larger than the other. The larger reads "fabric template", the smaller, "paper template."
