The Make LoungeThe Make Lounge runs craft workshops where you can learn how to sew, decorate, stick and cook in a relaxed and friendly setting. With 'make do and mend' enjoying a revival, the art of craft is fast becoming the hip new thing to do and The Make Lounge is one of the best places in London to get in on the act. Not only do they show you how to get crafty but they also have a shop equipped with all the tools and materials you need to create your own. With a good supply of printed fabrics from designers like Alexander Henry, Erin McMorris and Amy Butler, haberdashery, contemporary craft kits and all the trimmings you'll soon be customising your T-shirts and creating your own curtains.
