The craft sessions, put on by the art charity ST-ART with money by LEADER, cover a variety of crafts and run until July 14.

ST-ART co-ordinator, Janine Knight, said the sessions are focussing on different activities each week.

“The sessions started at the beginning of May and the first two were over-subscribed,” she said.  “They appear to be really popular.”

“The sessions cost just £1 and last from 7pm to 8.30pm.  As well as a Tuck Shop there is a free squash for all those taking part,” she went on.  “All materials are provided for every activity which includes bracelet making, clay name plaques, bedroom accessories and furry books.”

Janine added that as well as the workshop leader each session would also have some of ST-ART’s Art Apprentices helping out.
