make/do is a group of young(ish) mums based in south east London who get together every so often to share a drink, a few laughs, and tips on how to pick up dropped stitches, whip up a cushion cover or mend a broken zip. We love to knit, sew & crochet and want to help you enjoy it too!
In 2014 make/do took on the Nunhead Corner pop-up shop (now Bambuni) offering crafty supplies for knitters, sewers and the like, as well as classes and talks, and a lovely relaxed space to ‘make and do’ anything you fancy in (within reason!). Since then we have got on with our day jobs, dreaming of spending whole days crafting and chatting. So in 2016, Niki re-opened the dream by starting up the workshops again, this time at Nunhead’s new community centre, The Green.

Niki heads up the make/do sewing workshops. She has a degree in Textile design and embroidery and she and her husband have lived in Nunhead for 9 years. She has a great talent for designing and making creative homewares and clothes, and living as sustainably as possible. She is mum to 2 cheeky boys. Get in touch with Niki at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teg is a home crafter who occasionally sells knitting items through websites such as Folksy and through word of mouth, as well as publishing simple, original knitting patterns on her blog. She’s also mum to a pretty feisty toddler son who enjoys hitting things together. Loudly. She is a keen knitter, sewer and baker, and a terrible crocheter.
Julie is a keen knitter, sewer and baker with a slight addiction to craft magazines and books. She lives in Nunhead with her husband, baby girls, and a whole load of knitting she’s hoping to get finished someday!
