Craft Club is a brand new monthly creative club for young people aged 7-14, where participants can make friends, learn new craft skills and enjoy creating!!
As part of the Let’s Create Leigh Park project funded by The Arts Council, Craft Club will become part of our programmed offer over the next 18 months!
So, if you are, or know a creative young person that you think would enjoy Craft Club, please sign up. Spaces are limited to 10 per session and at only £5 each (£3 for Leigh Park residents) we expect these sessions to sell out quicky!
Craft Club takes place at Making Space on the first Monday of every month from 4-5.30pm!
