Slow Crafts

Are you interested in making a tee shirt tote, paper roll albums, layered paper hearts or wreaths, learning how to knit, crochet or cross stitch, designing and decorating a photo frame, upcycling a small piece of furniture or making your own Christmas decorations. Come and join us!

We have lots of ideas for cool crafty stuff, but if you have other things you would like to try, have a chat to us and we will see what we can do.  

Make something for yourself or make a unique gift for someone special. A homemade gift is far more valuable to the recipient than a mass produced shop bought item.

Planning And Preparation

Planning what crafty ideas students would like to attempt.  

- which things they may be able to supply from home, and what items we may need to buy or order in, which things students may be able to share to bring costs down (e.g. if students would like to use similar paint colours etc).

- tools that may be needed – hopefully we can beg borrow and steal rather than have to buy in. We aim to keep costs as low as possible for you. 

- what their individual projects may cost.
