This event was December 2017. Sign up to our newsletter to hear about plans for 2018.
Come and celebrate your creativity or simply try something new in our Mindful Craft Evening. This December we’ll be hosting an evening gentle community and supportive crafting. Even if you’re not creative then we’ll be on hand to help you.
Engaging in creative pursuits can ease stress, relieve tension and even offer some relief from anxiety. We’ll provide you with a warm, welcoming environment for the evening. Plus you’ll have an opportunity to try first hand some crafts that perhaps you haven’t tried before.
There will be six tables each holding a craft such as crochet, embroidery, paper crafts, origami, zentangle, crochet or card making. Each table will have a ‘tutor’ or a kind volunteer who has some experience of that particular craft. They’ll be able to show you how to create a simple piece that will take approximately 20 minutes to make.
After twenty minutes we’ll move round to the next table so that you should have a trial of each of the crafts. You could even bring a few of your friends and travel round all the tables together.
What To Expect
You’ll get the chance to try first hand each of the six crafts, as well as having tea and cake throughout the evening. There’ll be some spare tables too, just in case you fancy doing a jigsaw or simple mindful colouring.
As a crafty person myself, I know how therapeutic it can be to make something, create a piece of paperwork or decoupage, even simply to decorate a page in my diary. I thought it would be a welcome idea to give folk an opportunity to try something simple that maybe you haven’t tried before. All of the activities will have a teacher or guide and all this in the back drop of a quiet peaceful environment with friends.
£15 per person which includes all your crafting materials plus tea, coffee, cake and squash on the night. There are only a certain amount of places, to ensure the smooth running of the evening and that everyone has a chance at taking a turn at each craft so be sure to book up soon.
This will be held on Friday 8th December 6.30pm onwards at The Kennington WI Hall, Faversham Road TN24 9AL.
