REVIEW: Macramé Party @ The Alice House, Queens Park

REVIEW: Macramé Party @ The Alice House, Queens Park


WHAT? Learn a crafty new skill for life and make some new friends along the way.

A collective of cool craftspeople around the world, Wool & The Gang want to make fashion unique again. Pioneering fashion production that’s made in a sustainable way, the aim is to bring back knitting as a viable means of production for generations to come.

HOW? With parties, of course! Find your area, check out what’s on and rock up with some friends.

WHERE? Venues are varied, but we had an awesome evening at The Alice House in Queen’s Park – a pretty pub serving up great cocktails and hearty food like British beef burgers, warm Scotch eggs and fried baby squid.

We learned how to make macrame necklaces (following the ‘Sansa’ pattern, professional photo above) while sipping Prosecco and scoffing chips – an ideal weekday treat or a chilled hen party idea.

We met a dozen or so like-minded Londoners in the process, too (there was much gossiping as we got to grips with the instructions) and left feeling pretty accomplished, for a drizzly Tuesday night.

If you don’t fancy leaving the house, you can still get involved – simply purchase a Kit and learn to knit, then pass on your skills to others.

HOW MUCH? £30-35

WHEN? Check the website for parties near you. The next London event is Saturday, September 17, 2016 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM at Gazelli House – 174 Walton Street, London, SW3 2JL
