Craft Night at Notting Hill Arts Centre
We made it along last night to the Craft Night in W11 - a basement bar and club where everything was laid on for us to make finger puppets. A great opportunity to meet fellow crafty folk, have a drink, listen to some live music (electropop from 'Toy') and an eclectic mix of tunes from the DJs. I must admit I had trouble with the sewing, and getting the thread through the needle in half-light was a challenge (although the beer didn't help!). But once we got going it didn't really matter what our puppets turned out like...it's all about creativity, y'know! At one point I was knitting with plastic drinks straws for needles (?!). Congratulations to 'Pedro the Prawn' who walked away with the top prize for being the weirdest creation of the night....check out their MySpace page (www.myspace.com/craftnight) for the next one and make the journey, it's a laugh!
