The Craft Group is a friendly, warm and welcoming one. Meetings go from bubbly to quiet depending on how engrossed our members are, in the making of the craft for that month.
There is a planned programme of craft topics for the year which can be found on the Programme tab at the top of the Craft web page. The programme has a range of crafts on offer. Members in the group volunteer to lead a session if they feel confident enough to do so – no one is pushed into this role. We are fortunate to have a community tutor from Highbury College to lead, at least, one session during the year.
We have a core number of members who regularly attend the meetings and others who join us when they can. We have been taught and guided through crafts, which are either refreshing members’ memories, or others are getting to grips with a new craft. There are varying degrees of success with any topic: in the main most, if not all, can feel they have started to master a new craft element.
The Craft group meets in Cosham Baptist Church on the 1st Wednesday of the month between 2 – 4 pm in the Front Hall which is situated on the ground floor. The room and building is accessible to all. Future activities will include a variety of different crafts, such as, table decorations, calligraphy and card making with either group members or guest crafters leading the sessions. There is small individual charge, from the members, each meeting so the room rent is covered.
There are currently spaces available in the group and we would welcome new members irrespective of ability. If you feel you would be able to lead a session but not necessarily have the time to commit each month please contact the group leader in the usual way. You would be most welcome.
Please use the following contact if interested in becoming a member or you are willing to lead a session and someone will be in touch
