Domestic Sluttery

On Sunday 18 September, our lovely friends at Domestic Sluttery will be taking us over for a very special event devoted to the art and craft of letter writing.

The day will be divided up into 3 sessions, (morning, afternoon and evening) each with rotating individual activities, outlined below.  You can book your tickets for one  session, 2 sessions or all 3 at a discounted rate.

Morning Session (11am - 2pm)

1. The Last Post - Love letters.

 Write them, talk about them, receive one from the person sat next to you. This mini event will bring out the romantic in you. http://murderedthealphabet.tumblr.com/


2.  Book binding - make your own secret notebook. 

Want to practice scribbling your signature for when you're famous? Put your to-do lists somewhere pretty? Then you'll need your very own notebook for secret penmanship and doodling - the Homemade London team will show you how.


3. Domestic Sluttery talk correspondence.

The Domestic Sluttery team and special guests talk about their favourite letters (their own, and famed ones throughout history), and discuss what makes a good letter and why we enjoy getting them so much. Bring your own letters if you'd like to join in and read them out. http://www.domesticsluttery.com/

 

Afternoon (3pm - 6pm)

1. Aimee Furnival's Postcarden.

We love Aimee's Postcardens (cress gardens AND letters, what's not to like?), so she's going to help you make your own to post to someone very lovely. http://www.postcarden.com/

2. Letter Lounge. 

Take a seat, grab some paper and write that letter you've been meaning to write for ages. We'll even post it for you once you're done. http://letterlounge.co.uk/

3. Design your own postcards and letters with Tea & Crayons.

Wish they were here? Design your friends and family some postcards, and then send them on their way! http://teaandcrayonscollective.blogspot.com/

 

Evening (6:30pm - 8:30pm):

Domestic Debate - The Heartfelt Email

Has the internet and social media ruined letter writing? The Domestic Sluts are kicking off a debate about social media and how our letter writing has changed since we started emailing. Does it matter that we don't write by hand anymore? Do the words count more than old fashioned pen and paper? http://www.domesticsluttery.com/
