Otherwise here is some more info about our most popular workshop…
Workshop 1: The necklace
The aim of this workshop is to make a necklace using reclaimed vintage materials or ‘frilly bits’. Here are some examples of what can be made:
We highly recommend that people bring along any odd earrings, broken jewellery and other ‘frilly bits’ they may have inherited, as it is a really good way to personalise and make something new from something that would otherwise be disregarded.
If however, people don’t have their own bits to bring, that’s not a problem, as there will be plenty to work with…
The venue/ location is very much up to you. We have tried and can recommend a few venues in Central London, but if you have a venue in mind we can be flexible to fit in with your requirements. Perhaps you would prefer to do the workshop at your home or in your local pub!
FrillyByLily has teamed up with the lovely Becky and Nat from Teas Knees to bring you crafternoon tea. These two know everything there is to know about tea and cake.

Here is a quick quote from Laura Glendinning at Forest gate WI:
“Thank you so much for a fabulous evening. I have had so much positive feedback from people. I think what people enjoyed most was having a creative activity which they could also socialise around well, I honestly feel I am a very uncreative sort of person but I am actually wearing my necklace today!”
Here are some more images from our most recent hen party at the Royal Inn on the park in Victoria park…
Afternoon tea by the Teas Knees…
Here is a nice picture of the ladies at West Dreyton WI enjoying their necklaces…
