The Craft and Chat Group meet on the second Tuesday of the month unless holidays change this. Usually meet in the club but sometimes in members homes. Best to check but always welcome new members.
Various crafts are explored and all members are encouraged to share their skills. We like members to join in the running of the group. There are currently Knitters, Crocheters, card Makers, Decoupagers, Embroiderers, Cross stitchers, Felters and Collagers. If you have another skill or just want to learn something new then there will be someone in the Group who will be happy to help.
Over the last year we have collaged fabrics and then stitched into them. One member showed us how to make felt flower wreathes while another turned teabags into mini works of art.
On October 11th 2022, Jackie Cardie, a u3a member, ran a making felt workshop. It was well attended and everyone had a really good afternoon.
Members brought their tree decorations and they demonstrate the variety of skills in the group
On May 9th Two ladies from The John Saville Household Re enactment Society gave a talk on Medieval Crafts. Spinning, weaving. Dyeing and types of Embroidery. They brought examples of there work and were very interesting. We all had a super time and look forward to more similar sessions in the future.
We meet second Tuesday of the month. Our first meeting for 2024 will be on Tuesday 9th January 2024.
