COFFEE* AND CRAFTING
(* or tea if you would prefer!)
Have the Lockdowns inspired you to try a new craft, but you are not sure where to start?
Do online videos lack the personal touch for you?
Then join the team at the Museum of Richmond and Works of Love for some FREE crafting workshops for adults at the Museum!
Each month we will be exploring the story behind a beautifully crafted object in the Museum’s collection, then the friendly and experienced Works of Love Team will show you how to start your own projects, including embroidery and patchwork.
