Following on from the amazing fun we had doing our first Pop-Up Shop in Hackney back in July, Milk & Biscuits is back with a special Creative Christmas shop! Open from Tuesday 13th December to Saturday 17th December inclusive, we’re holding a fabulously collaborative series of crafty events – with special activities for the kids on the Thursday night with Little Art Forms (along with some late night shopping for the parents who can warm their cockles with a cup of mulled wine and a homemade mince pie.) On Saturday, the kids can get involved with a special badge-making workshop provided by The Amazing Art Cart. There will also be great discounts off apparel including our Autumn/Winter collection and even some of our Spring/summer 17 collection will be exclusively available at the shop.
Come along and check it out @ The Hackney Shop: 99 Morning Lane, E9 6ND
Sketch Books: Marks + Collage

Session 1 = 4.00 – 5.00pm / Session 2 = 5.30 – 6.30pm

Curated by art therapist Grace Thompson, and designed by Illustrator Peter Cline, The Little Art Forms Sketchbook was developed to ignite and encourage creativity and imaginative thinking. Packed full of images that highlight and bring together the work of contemporary and historical artists from around the world, their images act as a springboard for ideas, and to ignite and encourage children’s imaginative thinking. Ages 2 + All materials supplied: Limited places available. £10 a child, please book in advance HERE (Please note parents/guardians cannot leave their children unattended.)
