The Muse Connection: Volume 2

Helen —  March 18, 2015 — 1 Comment

The Muse Connection is a series of gatherings where we celebrate creativity, share our inspiration and come together as crafters. A Playful Day and Curious Handmade have collaborated in order to create sessions of creative fun, pulling together our two loves- maintaining a playfulness in the everyday and exploring our curiosity about new and creative things to make. For a few indulgent hours, enjoy inspirational company, at specially chosen venues for some knitting, a little chatter and share some musings on your favourite creative topics.

After the inspiration we shared for Volume 1 on colour and community, The Muse Connection will be exploring the theme of ‘beginnings’. Building on what made Volume 1 so popular we will once again be bringing like minded makers together as part of our Muse Connection Community and we can’t wait to share everything we’ve planned.

In this Volume we’re adding more: more door prizes, more goodies in the bags and some very special guests that we’ll be announcing shortly. Tickets go on sale this Saturday and we’re expecting quite a fast turn around following the reaction to Volume 1 so mark it in your diary!

The Muse Connection Volume 2

Tickets are £18 (plus booking fee) and include the following:

  • An exclusive goodie bag (containing goodies worth over £15!)
  • 3 and a half hours of indulgent time to knit and indulge your making
  • Become part of the Muse Connection community with exclusive first peeks at designs, products and future volumes
  • Delicious food and drink (gluten free options included)
  • 2 very special guests who will be sharing a unique insight into their knitty inspirations
  • Yarn tasting courtesy of our sponsor

For further announcements such as the refreshment plans, special guests and fun surprises, you can sign up for our newsletter on the event page, which is also where tickets will go on sale this weekend.

See you there?

TMC Volume 1 with Drink, Shop, Do

When hosting a creative event, you need a great venue!

We chose Drink Shop Do to host the first gathering of The Muse Connection because of it’s central London location and has a quirky, crafty feel. If you’ve not been before, you should pop in for some tea and cake or pour over their shop at the front. I love the oversized sweetie jars, mismatched furniture and beautiful light.

Here’s some details of what to expect…
