We are a group of people from different backgrounds and life experiences who live in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and who, through crafting, have found our smiles again. Smiles are infectious. We would love to share ours with you and through you to others.
Because we have all experienced the benefit of crafting for our own wellbeing, we are passionate about it, and want to help as many people as possible to either start crafting or to develop the crafting skills they already have, or simply to have a go at something they haven't tried before. We offer a range of pop-up/taster events and short and long paper crafting and mixed media courses. These can be found in the Courses section below or our Crafting Page.
Based on the unique techniques and designs developed for our craft groups, we have produced craft kits and embellishments - 'elegant bits' - so that you can produce something unique for your home or the homes of the important people in your life as a gift. If you aren't a crafter yourself, but love unique designs, we have turned our crafting activities and designs into unique home décor and stationery products which we display and sell in our Gallery so that you too can share some of our experiences.
Our courses, all delivered live online are fun, social events that allow new connections and friendships to be made All materials and tools needed are posted in advance of each event and are yours to keep. We run Pop-up/taster events, 5 and 10 week short courses and year long courses.
We have 32 free places on 4 Pop-ups in December 2020 and January 2021 for people living in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and on the first term of our 'From Beginner to Advanced Crafter' Course starting 1 February 2021 for people living in Peterborough.
