Craft & Chat Drop in

Back to Activities

Craft & Chat drop in an informal and friendly way to spend some time on a crafts project that you may be working on. If you're wanting to improve your crochet or sewing skills you can also get involved in classes taught by Helen.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • crafting can be a mindful activity as you concentrate on your crafting projects
  • its an opportunity to mix with others in a friendly environment.
  • it’s good to get out and about

What to expect?

On arrival you will be greeted with a warm welcome from Helen. You can access the drop-in work space at the back of the shop.

You will also be greeted by Mr Fluffy which is Helen’s small dog who will be present at the back of the shop.  He is very friendly and loves a cuddle.

The drop-in runs for a few hours, and you can sit on work on your own craft project or just chat to other members as they work.

There are teas and coffees available for a small donation.
