I was invited along to a girls crafty night out at the fabulous Homemade london . Homemade London specialises in luxurious and indulgent creative experiences - just my cup of tea!
Classes are small, to ensure that you will get the personal tuition you need to create objects of desire - we all made beautiful valentines card for our husbands! The workshops are social experiences; you can enjoy a glass of wine and a light supper or an afternoon tea as you work - its a great idea for hen parties, baby showers or team building!
It was a real pleasure to meet the owner Nicola Barron. Nicola is a fashion and interior design junkie who moved to Paris at age of 18 to immerse herself in the fashion industry before pursuing a career as a TV producer. After 10 years at the BBC she left in2009 to find a new challenge that would combine her skills and experience with her passion. As a serial evening-class attendee, she always struggled to find classes that taught her to make things she'd actually want to wear or keep. The inspiration for Homemade London came from a desire to learn from the designers she loves.
As well as classes, Homemade London also offer a sewing café – you can rent a sewing machine or overlocker from £10 an hour during the day or evening and work on your own projects. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s worth a visit just to see the beautiful bespoke sewing machine wallpaper! Love it!
Corset laced mannequins was an amazing find! Elegant and tailored in a variety of sumptuous fabrics, the very talented Lucy Curtis hand makes these fabulous mannequin's herself! You can see more of these lovely ladies here and look out for them on Gok's Fashion Roadshow!

Thank you Lucy!
