It’s great to welcome back onboard the Seaside Sisters, dubbed “the queens of coastal themed craft” in this review on Vintage By Hemingway, for a week of vintage seaside inspired souvenirs and workshops.
The Seaside Sisters will be making the most of LV21’s fascinating space with seaside themed sets, exhibiting their work with theatrical waves, a floral clock and Punch and Judy inspired displays. There will be lots of activities and craft workshops for children and adults to join, and a shop selling Seaside Sisters crafts and vintage UK souvenirs.
On bank holiday Monday we will be joined by Nick Brown of the rare vinyl record shop Intoxica, for a surf and nautical themed DJ set. You may also catch a glimpse of the enchanting mermaid aka soprano Sophia Brumfitt who will be luring us deep into the ship with her beautiful voice.
Come and join in the fun!
