Back to my favourite free creative venue – House of Vans. This time with the backing of ASOS to present Make It Yourself in order to promote and teach about creative scene. This was a free event with a Day and Night session.

The Day session ran from 11:00 – 16:00.

It was honestly an extremely insightful day as I’ve been considering in self-publishing for a while. It was a great day to network and learn from those already in the industry. Finding your creative passion and working for it is one of the things that House of Vans stood for.

They certainly delivered that and then some.

It was also a casual free day out where you could grab yourself a bunch of freebies with heat pressing your own totes or sit and take in the music.

What is House of Vans without skating? You had a chance to hit the ramps.

Responsibilities are calling me…
