We love a craft session at Livingetc, especially one held in an oh-so-pretty salon that includes afternoon tea. You can join all manner of creative workshops at Homemade London – from lingerie and beauty products to cushion and Christmas decoration making. You can also rent sewing machines and workshop space by the hour, should be just long enough to run up something fabulous for that party tonight (in our dreams).
