Our Workshops are Fun and Creative as well as being jam packed with tips and expert knowledge we can't wait to share with you!
We use a Meetup Scheduling Website to organise your crafting schedule so all you have to do is sign up for the course you like and we'll keep you posted with news, changes and a handy reminder a week before the workshop date.
