During December you can come along to one of our short courses and learn how to make something for yourself or to give as a gift this festive period.

“Places are strictly limited so we’d urge you to hurry and book your place. We’ve also introduced a new course this year – a traditional Victorian Christmas – where you can join us for mince piece and hot drinks while creating your own Victorian Christmas crafts with a contemporary twist!”
