Arts and Craft
The arts and crafts group meets in the church on Thursday afternoon from 1.00pm -3.00pm. The group aims to encourage individuals to share their existing skills and to learn new skills. From an initial group of 8, the group is now regularly around 14 people of differing abilities and wide-ranging interests. Many crafts are available including: knitting; crochet; embroidery; using the sewing machine; decoupage; glass-painting or bring along something you’ve been working on at home. There’s something for everyone and it’s not all hard work, there is always time to chat and make new friends over a cup of tea and a biscuit.
We hope that everyone will bring ideas to the group – either for new craft activities or social events and we are delighted if group members would like to lead an activity.
Most skills are learned from others within the group, but we also have some specialist guest ‘crafters’ with sessions including flower arranging, jewellery-making and painting.
If you have skills to share or would like to learn something new or if you just want to meet some new people locally, we would be delighted to see you.
