I’m new to blogging, I’m sure you will start to see that writing isn’t really my forte, but I can assure you that craft is. Over the last week, I’ve been scouring the internet looking for craft or cookery courses taking place in South London. It was mostly a depressing internet search, with over half of the courses taking place in East or North London. My search had bought up a lot of out of date information but occasionally a glimmer of light would shine down and I’d find a little gem of a course, group or company, with an event taking place in South London and had I not searched I would now be trekking to the east to get my crafty fix.
Don’t get me wrong, this blog is not about us versus them. I love East London as much as the next person; Curtain Road, Hoxton Square & Brick Lane are little treats after work or at weekends, however the commute to get there and back in my mind is a mission, especially after a glass of wine or two. So, because of the distance it really is a treat and my desire to stay local; to go out locally and discover more of what is going on around me and what is locally growing.
To put it frankly crafts/ craft courses in South London are lacking and I feel it is my South Londoner duty to bring craft awareness south of the river.
This blog is going to be a little slow to begin with, but don’t you worry, you won’t always be hearing from me, I’ll be roping my friends in to lend a writing hand. However this blog is going to be stagnant unless I hear from anyone who wants to be part of the club. I welcome your suggestions, comments and contributions.
I look forward to hearing from you
