The Recommendation | Five best Christmas Workshops

With the end of November nearing it's probably time for me to have a little think about that little thing called Christmas. I'm  starting to get in the festive spirit; the glistening lights of Oxford Street are a welcome distraction when I'm stuck behind hoards of rather slow tourists (yes, I'm a Londoner.) After having such a great time at my last workshop I've pulled together the best of the rest to get those crafty fingers going as well as helping you with a little preparation. Click on the titles to see more!

1 |  Wreath making Workshop with One Flew Over at Another Country, 19th November, £45
Get your door Christmas-ready with Jess and Charlie of One Flew Over at Another Country's Marylebone store. The girls will show you how to create a fresh, natural and festive wreath and you'll leave with your winter foliage and the knowledge to do it on your own next year.

This one is a little less seasonal but I think it would make a fabulous gift as a workshop or if you give away your end product. On the day you'll learn how to craft a spoon from reclaimed timber and perhaps you'll be enjoying christmas pudding with your very own wooden creation!

So yeah, I'm kind of cheating here but what could be better than just one workshop when you can do loads?! Make your own geometric decoration for free or book in with Wool & The Gang to arm-knit a snood. There's plenty of other reasonably priced activities as well as stores to grab some prezzies for your pals.

4 |  Christmas Crackers with Paperchase, Tottenham Court Road, 2nd December, £10
We all know how terrible crackers can be so why not just make your own? This workshop teaches you how to make and decorate your own crackers adding your own handmade touch to the dinner table.

We know I'm a fan of this lovely lady and her mad scalpel skills so join her over a hot chocolate at charming cafe 'All You Read Is Love'. Create something truly crafty and impressive to give to your friends or just to decorate your own pad over the yuletide season.
