Before Covid we ran regular ‘girls nights in’ a chance to have a good catch up, a giggle, a drink or 3 ;-) with your girls friends/ colleagues/ family etc and make something at the same time…it’s been a long time coming but they’re back! Our ‘crafty eves’ will replace these as we don’t want to leave the boys out! In the main they involve getting creative, hand sewing & minimal sewing machine use so feel free to bring along a bottle or buy drinks from the bar on the floor above! Enjoy good company, the mindfulness of craft and leave with something you’ve enjoyed making!!!
