Workshops & Events
We love doing workshops and have attended many ourselves at different venues so when some extra space became available next to our shop we jumped at the chance to set our own up!
We have dedicated followers who come to all our workshops and some that just dip in and out depending on what we are doing. The workshops are aimed mostly at adults as they are usually throughout the daytime, however we do go out to other clubs in the evenings if required.
We can also cater for children’s groups such as guides and scouts. During the school holidays we run a Kids Club where children can come along and be creative, these happening usually on a Wednesday. We have just recently had a build a bug competition and the bugs are hanging up outside our shop for all to see! We provide refreshments as part of the class and if you attend all day there is a restaurant to purchase lunch if needed.
Our forthcoming workshops are listed on our website and Facebook, and items we will be making will be displayed at the front of our shop along with workshop details.
