Welcome to The Makings Of

Hi! We run craft classes in East Dulwich, South East London for those who would like to make in a friendly and supportive environment. We want you to make something you will love to use; learn something new; and, find a space to switch off.

All of our classes are small so that you get proper support. We have been there with stress and anxiety and really believe in the de-stressing and mindfullness power of making. We currently have espadrille making classes re- starting in April and running until June. Classes are small so if you are interested book now!


Other classes are in development, including plastic replacement classes – for the kitchen - beeswax wraps and vegetable bag making; for beauty – hairbands and face wipes. If you have ideas or suggestions of other things you would like to make then please contact us.

You can find out more about what is going on via Instagram or Facebook.

"A great time learning to make Espadrilles with Tamara,

I went with my sister and neither of us have any craft skill or experience and Tamara made it completely accessible!"

Upcoming workshops

Classes are normally held on a Wednesday evening, upcoming classes:

  • Make your own espadrilles - view classes
