The events will be running once a month and are free to attend. If you can bring your own cuppa and a cake, you’ll be provided with a choice of creative activity (air drying clay; colouring sheet and colouring pencils; embroidery threads, fabric & needle or cotton tote bag & fabric pastels). You can choose which activity you would like when registering.
