Crafty Culture is a friendly weekly drop-in session for people from all backgrounds and cultures who come together to create and craft. The group is aimed at anyone from the local area whose mental health and wellbeing would benefit from a free, drop-in craft session, or who is interested in meeting other people from different cultural backgrounds.

You can either do your own thing or learn some basic crochet skills. Creations can include rag rugs, knitted scarfs, embroidery, jewellery, and pattern cutting – the list goes on! This class is great if you want to learn basic crochet skills. 

What you need: You can either bring your own project, or a small number of materials will be available such as wool and fabric
