Venue and date/time: The group meets on the 2nd Thursday of every month from 10.30-12.30pm at Walkden Gateway.

Handicrafts covers a wide range of skills including wool craft, needlecraft and paper crafts.

This group is for anybody who has a skill they would like to share or something they would like to learn.  Members can learn from each other, share ideas and become creative in a relaxed, chatty atmosphere.
Sessions include a variety of crafts based on members interests, with a programme and projects decided by the group.

Some sessions are currently just a broad topic with details to be planned.  The programme is subject to change. Unless otherwise stated, materials and equipment are provided for a small charge.
