CLUBS AND WORKSHOPS (2017)

CLUBS

Do you have an interest or hobby and have often thought you would like to meet up with friends who have a similar interest for a chat and exchange of ideas? If that is the case why not start a club. For example, if you enjoy reading then why not start a book club!

You could begin a club of your own and have a regular weekly meeting, either between 10am-12pm or between 2.00 – 4.00 pm any day, except Friday. We have a room you are welcome to use for up to two hours each week.

These are informal, drop in, do it yourself style sessions held upstairs in our newly decorated Blue Room. For example, discuss the latest books, authors or poetry, explore themes and the latest trends in writing/authorship.

This is a free session, just pay for your drinks/food.

CRAFT WORKSHOPS 

Thank Craft, its Friday!

A regular meet up every Friday morning 10am-12pm.

These are informal, drop in, do it yourself style sessions held upstairs in our light & airy workshop. Bring along your crafty projects, meet new friends, share tips and tricks.

Sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery, drawing, patchwork, anything goes (within reason!)

Come along and support our own little craft army.

This is a free session, just pay for your drinks/food.
