Craft Club is a national programme that champions craft in schools and communities. Clubs are generously run by skilled volunteers who pass on their skills and keep craft alive. We currently have 450 clubs across England and Wales and would like to build on this success with your help.
Craft Club is running a series of inspiring and informative training days. The days are FREE of charge and are for competent knitters and craftspeople who wish to set up clubs. You will spend the day finding out aboutCraft Club, how to set up a club and how we can support you. You’ll also hear some inspirational talks, meet new people and do some making.
