We're delighted to be bringing Collage Club to our pop-up for an evening of ripping, sticking, cutting and pasting.
The collage table will be laden with gorgeous magazines, paper, stickers, tapes and plenty of scissors and glue to get busy with.
Guests will be guided through a series of collaborative warm-up activities before they set to work on their own paper-based masterpieces.
We'll also have a stash of festive materials in case anyone wants to get ahead with their Christmas crafting. Tickets are £10 + booking fee and are available here.
Launch Party - Thursday 14th November - 6:30- 8:30pm
Join us to celebrate the end of our Crowdfunder campaign and kick off the shop in style. Meet the Flock, listen to some great tunes, while checking out our beautiful selection of ethical, sustainable fashion and gifts.

Think Locally, Act Globally: A Birdsong In-Store Panel - Friday 15th November - 6:30- 8:30pm
Using the framework of “Think locally, act globally”, we’re encouraging a discussion about the health of the planet as a whole, and how to take action in our own communities and cities.
With a bombardment of bad news from near and afar, how do we can we practise being active citizens without combusting? How do we show up for causes important to the greater world and the ones nearer to home, with a million issues to learn about at our fingertips?
Tickets are £5-£10 and available here. Book in advance to guarantee entry.
