Makerhoodies at South Bank Village Fair

Craft is coming to the Southbank Centre on 24 and 25 August – and Makerhood will be there!

The Village Fair is part of the Southbank Centre’s Festival of Neighbourhood and will include local brass bands and bell ringers, traditional games such as hoopla, a dog show, and animals from Vauxhall City Farm.

Carol Grantham of Carol’s Creative Workshops will offer you the chance to make a needlefelted ladybird, snail or leaves, Maggie Winnall of Sewin Studio will be making beautiful garden-themed bunting, and Chloe Morais of Cheeky Suds will be creating scrubs, bath salts and foot soaks using natural floral and herbal ingredients from the garden.

Kim Winter of Makerhood and Flextiles will also be taking part in a discussion at the Craft Code Village in the Royal Festival Hall at 11am on Saturday 24 August, talking about how the internet has contributed to the revival of the craft community.

And Karen Martin of Makerhood and Chris Patton of Eight B Design will be on hand, too, to spread the word about Makerhood’s expansion across Lambeth and sell work by makers taking part.

It’s all free, including a ceilidh on Saturday evening at 6pm. So bring your crafty fingers and dancing shoes and join us for a fab weekend!

The Village Fair runs at the Southbank Centre on Saturday and Sunday 24 and 25 August, 11am-4pm.
