A bit about Tea & Crafting:
Tea and Crafting in Camden is the first place that I ever ran a rag rug workshop in London. As you can imagine, it therefore holds a special place in my heart 🙂 So, I was absolutely horrified when I heard that the Camden workshop space had been affected by the fire that swept through Camden Lock in July earlier this year.
Fortunately, Jane Gois (the owner of Tea and Crafting) had just signed the lease on a beautiful new craft venue, slap bang in the centre of Covent Garden (trip to Neal’s Yard anyone?) With the Tea and Crafting Covent Garden venue up and running just in time, Jane was able to move all of the workshops, hen dos and craft parties to the new space while the London Fire Brigade dealt with the flooding and damage left by the fire. They apparently did an amazing job!
After all the drama of the past month and a half, this story has a happy ending as the Tea and Crafting workshop space in Camden is now back to its former glory. So, there are now two gorgeous venues to choose from for your London craft workshops 🙂
Ragged Life at Tea & Crafting:
A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure to run a private rag rug lesson at the new Tea and Crafting Covent Garden studio. I had an absolute blast exploring the new space and you can see some of my photos from the workshop below.
p.s. If you read this post and feel inspired to book onto a weekend or evening Rag Rug Class at Tea and Crafting, you can do so here. I’d love to see you at a class in the near future x
Photos of Tea and Crafting Covent Garden:
After seeing Jane’s amazing peg board at the new Tea and Crafting venue, I immediately went online and browsed for a peg board to buy. Keep your eyes peeled for one popping up in my flat or studio in the near future 🙂
From the moment that you step into the workshop, you’re surrounded by beautiful and bright handmade things like these multi-coloured paper tassels that hang over the door into the studio. They’re so tactile, I just wanted to brush them with my fingers.
I’m a huge fan of beautiful craft storage and Jane always nails it. I may have to nick this string of pom poms idea!
I don’t often post a gratuitous selfie but these paper flowers were so cute, I couldn’t resist 🙂
I spent the workshop in the company of lovely Donna from the USA. She’s a craft lover through and through but had never tried rag rugging before.
So, I hope you like my photos from Tea and Crafting Covent Garden (credit to Jane for making it so beautiful that it photographs well) and hopefully see you at a workshop in the near future. You can see a full list of our Tea and Crafting workshops here. or follow Tea and Crafting on Instagram here.
