workshops at SMUG

Make It Your Own cover small


In collaboration with SMUG designer A Alicia, the upstairs room of our Camden Passage shop SMUG, will be, for the first time ever, transformed into a workshop space.


For two Sundays in October you’ll be able to come along and take part in workshops based on projects from A Alicia’s book ‘Make It Your Own’ which will also be for sale at SMUG during October.


On Sunday 13th October come along and make a Geometric Stencilled Wall-Hanging. You’ll learn stencilling and the art of pom pom making.


On Sunday 27th October make a gorgeous little Hand-Embroidered Drawstring Bag, perfect for storing bits and bobs, especially when travelling, or for wrapping a very special gift. You’ll learn simple free-hand embroidery techniques, with a modern take on vintage floral embroidery, and learn how to sew a drawstring bag.


All materials and equipment will be provided and you’ll end up with something beautiful and completely unique to take home for a special introductory price of £20. FYI there are very limited spaces, so please book here early to avoid disappointment.


Just in case you needed any added incentive, Emily of T&SHOP will be running a pop up tea room downstairs at SMUG, offering home brewed teas and delicious baking. So do come along early to buy your tea and cake to take up and enjoy during the workshop.


Dates: Sunday 13th October and Sunday 27th October, Time: 2.30pm – 4.30pm


Venue: SMUG, 13 Camden Passage, Islington, NI 8EA (5 minutes from Angel tube)
