Crafternoons: craft, chat and coffee

Each month will be a particular activity:

  • April: Tote Bag decorating.

Come along to our volunteer led craft session on Thursday afternoons. This is an open craft group so please bring in any handicraft project you happen to be working on be it knitting or crochet, embroidery or darning, come for a chat and get some inspiration from fellow crafters!

If you don't have a project, feel free to use any tools and materials that our volunteer Jayne brings along. Try you hand at various crafts such as needle felting, crochet, knitting, paper crafts and lots more. Or simply help us knit our resident teddy bear a new scarf.

We want to create a space where anyone can come and learn a new craft, share their skills and ideas and help each other on our creative journeys, and we encourage any beginners to come and learn from our more experienced members.

No need to reserve a space, just pop along.
