The Tate Britain recycled xmas tree installation by Bob and Roberta Smith

Make Your Own Xmas

 

East End artist 'Bob and Roberta Smith' gets all interactive this Christmas by inviting us all to Tate Britain to use pedal power to bring his festive art installation to life!

Yes, we have the power to illuminate his 11 metre high xmas tree - made from recycled bits and bobs - by hopping on one of 8 bikes and giving it some welly....

So c'mon, what you waiting for?

Vivien Cheng reworked vintage bags.

Painted Love

 

We’re totally in LOVE with these revamped vintage bags by Vivien Cheng!

Each bag is carefully selected by the lady herself, then, taking in the style and shape, is painted with bespoke metallic or brilliant jewel-coloured designs – transforming them from dull to dazzling must-have handbags.

Step out for a night on the town with one of these darlings clutched under your arm and you’ll look both timeless and über cool.

Go on, grab some vintage arm candy: www.viviencheng.com

The Make Lounge Crafts Centre - Make Eco-friendly Crafty Things!

On The Make

 

Let's face it, January is a reeeeeeaaal bore!

Everyone's either skint, on a diet or in hibernation. Well, not us. We'll be getting nimble fingered over a glass of wine at one of MakeLounge's freakishly fun crafty happenings in Islington.

Yes, it might sound just a tad 'knit-your-own-museli' but hey, what better time to indulge your inner geek, especially when you get to leave with your own selection of saucy knickers / scented candles / decoupage platter - made by your own fair hand?
