Craft and Chat

Age Range: 18+
Ability Level: All abilities welcome
Upcoming dates: 5th Feb, 4th March, 1st April, 6th May, 3rd June, 1st July

Come along and join our craft and chat group: enjoy learning how to crochet, cross stitch, do diamond art or hone your own craft project, and most importantly have fun and make new friends.

This is a great opportunity to meet new people and learn a different skill or improve on a craft you already know in a friendly informal setting where you can buy a cuppa and a cake!

You might already be a keen crafter, or you might just fancy trying something new – all are welcome.

Sarah and Mel want this craft and chat group to get you smiling, chatting and creating!

From Sarah and Mel:

Hi my name is Sarah and I am originally from Northern Ireland and moved to Lancaster almost 7yrs ago. I started to crochet and do other crafts during COVID and when health was poor and it really brought a sense of accomplishment and made life more relaxing and enjoyable.

Hi I’m Mel, originally from the North East, lived in Manchester, Todmorden and Newbury, but have been living on a narrowboat in Lancaster since 2023. I’ve been interested in crafting since I was 16 and helped out making props. I’ve made everything from tribal masks to a 1950s movie camera, and tried all kinds of crafts; as well as running various craft sessions previously.

Our motto is that there are no mistakes in a craft session, everyone creates their own unique work. We’re aiming to make sure sessions are welcoming, fun and creative – it all adds to positive wellbeing! We look forward to meeting you
