Amidst the organised chaos of tables loaded with crafty goodness, piles of bright paper, fresh sticks of glue, scissors ready for action and glittery confetti, the air is filled with happy crafty chatter and excited maker giggles. There is a rainbow of helium balloons bobbing overhead and you’ve got the feeling that the summer is finally here. You spot a table loaded up with cakes and realise that you’re basically at a kids party for adults, and yes there is a bar, sound good? Well it is good, it’s the Brighton Etsy Team Craft Party, this is number four and each year they are getting better and better.
Meticulously planned by Toby Dean aka ilikeCATS with the help of fellow team members, weeks of careful preparation go into making this event it as fun as it can be. The craft party is fully inclusive, you don’t need to have an Etsy shop to come along and have a go, it’s the more the merrier.
Members of the Brighton Etsy Team will be leading different projects, this year you can expect to work on paper garlands, make your own badges, try your hand at weaving and dabble in some mask making. There will even be a craft swap where you can replace your no longer loved supplies with some inspiring new crafty goodness from fellow swappers.
It’s a really great night to meet and get creative with like minded Brighton makers, it is always a hugely friendly event and there will be plenty of treats and prizes from some fab local businesses who are sponsoring the party.
The Etsy Craft Party is a global event with teams across the world coming together and celebrating craft on the same day. As one of the strongest teams in the UK the Brighton party is… well… probably… the best in the… whole world. To be honest you’d be crazy not to come.
There are only 150 tickets available (click here), they are £7.00 each, with 50 early bird tickets waiting to be snapped up for just £5.00 (early bird offer until May 22nd).
The event is again being held at the Brighthelm Centre on Friday 10th June, 7pm to 10pm.
The first 100 folk through the doors will also get an exclusive enamel pin badge by ilikeCats 🙂 mega yays!!
This is a not for profit event, all of the organisers and helpers are volunteers, money from the tickets goes directly into hiring the venue and getting awesome supplies for the workshops, so please don’t delay and get your tickets today!!!
We cant wait to see you there 🙂
Much love, The team xx
