Next event: Sunday 27 January 2019
Arts and Crafts. To quote Joseph Beuys, "everyone is an artist". Get crafty, and explore your creative side.
Bring: your crafting projects (this could be literally anything, from knitting to whittling). In the spirit of "Do It Ourselves", feel free to bring your own colouring books, crayons, pens, pencils, paper, paints, glitter glue, scrapbooks etc. that you might already have.
Or just bring your sweet self and your imagination - we will provide basic materials (and a little bit of instruction) to get you started.
Learn: Painting. Emery will be on hand to offer instruction and simple exercises as an "Intro to Watercolours". Drawing. Kade will offer workshops in Zentangles, a no-experience-required approach to getting creative in pen and ink.
Cost: purely voluntary donation to help cover the cost of provided materials
Location: ask for details
- step-free access (entire ground floor)
- gender-neutral toilets
- accessible toilet (lagre: 2.5m x 1.5m)
- service dogs welcome, but no designated space
- seating is sofas plus unbacked stools/benches - wooden backed chairs are available on request

Pronoun/name stickers will be available.
For general information about the event, location, Non-binary London stuff, please contact Ynda (firstname.lastname@example.org / 07965 354 610). For questions about the activities, supplies, etc. please email/text Kade (email@example.com / 07763 974 369) or Emery (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We'll continue to meet on a three weekly basis for the next couple of times, then re-evaluate how that's working:
- 17 February: East London
- 9 March: West London
Recommendations for venues with good access and plenty of space in the East and West (as well other areas of London) are very welcome!
In order to provide a (thin) layer of safety for our members, we don't provide venue details of events on the website (though where we are attending a public event, the venue can generally be found online pretty easily). In order to access venue details, you should join the Facebook group and/or the mailing list. Note that if you join the mailing list, you probably won't receive venue details for an event already listed on this page (as the email will most likely have already gone out). If you want to find out the venue of an event that was already listed here when you joined the mailing list, get in contact.
As much as possible, we organise events in places that have step-free access and that cater to vegan diets. We also endeavour for at least a substantial part of each meetup to be a free activity (excluding any food and drinks you choose to buy), and specify any ticket fees where they exist.
Get in contact if you have any suggestions for how we can make our events more accessible or if you'd like to come to a particular event and have specific accessibility needs - we'll try our best to accommodate.
Here we will dump the details of previous events to allow visitors to get a feel for the kinds of in-person meetups we have. Events organised before the website was created (June 2018) are not included but can be found in the Facebook group.
