We then use the object as inspiration for a craft project based on the object and the skills needed to create it. No experience needed – absolute beginners very welcome.
You will receive a goody bag of materials to help you continue crafting at home. We also provide tea, coffee and snacks during the tea break so you can have a relaxed chat with like-minded crafters.
To help keep these workshops open to as many people as possible, in this time of ever rising prices, we are asking participants to donate what they can. These donations will help cover the costs of the materials in the goody bag and help keep the workshops going.
