Get creative at our fortnightly craft sessions; tea, cake, conversation and creativity – all welcome!
Places are limited to 20 participants to ensure the quality of the sessions remains high. Please book in advance so that artists know how many to prepare materials for. The cost of each session is £2
which barely covers material costs; as a community arts charity we welcome addition donations for those who can afford it to help us continue our valuable work.
