Christmas Crafts Workshop


Sunday 25th November, 10am-4.30pm

An opportunity to try a selection of crafts in time for Christmas. The day will comprise four individual mini-workshops, each one long enough to teach you how. They will be repeated throughout the day so you can choose more than one craft – of course we’d love you to try them all!

What will we be making?

  • a seasonal garland from fabric and ribbons requiring no sewing whatsoever
  • traditional Danish Christmas decorations from paper
  • needle felted baubles for the tree – you don’t need to know how – it’s easy to learn and great fun
  • a cute retro-style knitted brooch (some knowledge of knitting needed)

In between the workshops there will be a demonstration of a festive table decoration – everyone will be given a starter kit so they can make their own closer to the big day.

We are also providing a light lunch* with some (early) Christmas fizz (non alcoholic or with).

Cost: £35,  includes all materials, lunch, tea and coffee
