Woodcutters Amber Ale from the Tooborac Hotel. Country craft at its best big juicy taste, and a punch of chocolate all tied in to a classic Amber.

Crafty Pint. Handmade Christmas.

This Saturday, after a week of endless essay hand-ins, I took the day off and ventured to the Tooting Tram and Social for some R+R in the shape of a day of Blue Peter styley, Christmas themed, make it yourself. The pub had been transformed for the day into a series of little workshop spaces for a variety of have-a-go craft sessions.

On offer was screen print your own cards and gift wrap, make your own jewellery, fuse glass to create coaters and tea light holders, make your own paper stars, paint pottery, create a felted bauble for your Christmas tree, weave willow, decorate cakes and make a wreath.

 

To allow everyone to do what they want to do in the limited time available, you had to drop in/sign up to each individual craft for which you were interested in doing and pay them directly.

I had grand ambitions of basically making everything. That didn’t happen. Firstly, as I discovered that’s not financially viable, and secondly, DIY is not a 5-minute process.

Prices range from £1 a willow star, to around £15-20 for the more time consuming and require more tools and materials.

 

Of the crafts I had a go at, undoubtedly the highlight was ‘make your own fabric wreath’ at Flamin’ Nora’s stand. Guided by the lovely Jane (who turns out is not called Nora), I embarked on a two-hour long craftathon of choosing your colours of your material, making strips and assembling the wreath (whilst eating cake and gassing to my friends). I have to say I’m rather pleased with the result (below). Once the Christmas tree has been bought and assembled in Chez Betty, I shall be hanging my wreath pride of place on the front door.

 

Crafty pints are a fairly regular occurrence. You can find out what’s happening soon, as well as book on their website (highly recommended to avoid missing out- they do get very busy).
