Oak Tree Farm Craft Group
This recently-formed group meets on the first Tuesday of the
month from 7pm – 9.30pm in the Tea Room.
It is open to anyone interested in any crafts, whether you
wish to learn a new technique or just come along to enjoy crafting with
like-minded people. There is no need to book – just turn up; all are
welcome. There is a charge of £5 per
person to cover refreshments and any money raised goes to support the work of
Oak Tree Farm.
We have been sharing skills in needle-felting, bag making
and felted jewellery. The pictures show
some of the items we have made – while having fun and eating cake!
Over the coming months we will be covering other topics (see
programme below), but you will be just as welcome if you want to come along with
your own project and perhaps just knit or crochet. You may also find someone who would like to
learn from you – or you from them.
The provisional programme we are planning for the rest of
the year is:
6th June Book Folding
4th July Continental
1st August Informal
summer craft-along – bring your “work in progress”
5th September tba
3rd October Millinery
7th November Felted
5th December It’s
Christmas! Let’s make crackers!
I have had some lovely feedback from people who have been
inspired to continue with their newly-acquired skills at home. I have heard of sewing machines being
purchased, or being used again after years in the cupboard! If you do make something, then please
consider making another item, or two, to be sold in our Tea Room. It all helps the Farm to continue its
important work with adults with learning needs.
If you would like to join my email list to receive a
reminder and list of any items you might need for a particular evening, please
send your email to email@example.com stating “Craft Group”.
We hope to see you soon.
