Londoners are learning more about their genitalia at these craft classes
Embroider your member at London Loom (pictured)
At London Loom’s ‘membroidery’ session, you’ll be given a hand-mirror on arrival so you can pop to the loo to inspect your undercarriage before stitching it for posterity. The studio’s founders Francesca and Brooke will be on hand to show you the best technique for textural pubes, how a cluster of French knots makes a great clit and why seed stitches can really set off your scrotum. Don’t worry about feeling shy, it’s a friendly, boozy atmosphere – and it’s BYOB!
Hackney Downs Studios. Rectory Rd Overground. Tue Feb 12. £25.
Berlin-born Jess De Wahls, who describes herself as the ‘enfant terrible of British textile arts’, will teach you how to chain-stitch your vagina. While you get stuck into sewing, YouTuber Florence Schechter – who is hoping to build the world’s first vagina museum in London – will regale you with some muff maxims. Half of the ticket sales will go towards setting up Florence’s vagina museum. There is already a penis museum in Iceland, after all.
Soho Theatre. Leicester Square tube. Mar 16. £120.
Sex-positive, intersectional and inclusive London zine Sex + is embracing bushes of all breeds for a craft evening led by sex educator Phil Moore. Using atypical craft materials, they’ll help you find new ways of ‘doing pubes’, from landing strips to full ’70s Wookiees. Absolutely no artistic skills are required, only an open mind. The day will finish with a screening of ‘Pubes in the Wind’, a short film celebrating the fabulous nature of nether hair. It’ll make you think twice before shaving any of it off.
Drink Shop & Do. King’s Cross tube. Apr 7. £15.
