Crafts & Coffee  sessions take place in the Hub at WORKAID in Chesham on the second Wednesday of each month 10am - 12noon. Everyone is most welcome to join us for a cuppa and a chat while working on their current projects. Bring a friend too, and share ideas and skills. It's a great morning of fun and friendship!

Crafts & Coffee  demonstrations and workshops take place on the fourth Wednesday of each month 10am -12noon. These are led by experienced practising artists and crafts people to provide tasters in a wide variety of subjects - from wood sculpture to textiles, teddy bears, knitting, musical instruments, stump work embroidery, lace making, straw platting, crochet, card making, sewing and knitting machines, and many more exciting topics. It's a chance to work with eminent tutors, many with a national and even international reputation.
Do get in touch with us if you could contribute to this programme of crafts or if you have ideas for new topics.

The Crafts & Coffee programme also offers short courses as follow ups to the tasters, in response to interest in specific subjects.

The HUB at WORKAID is a very good space for arts and crafts and it's available for small private arts and crafts groups (Max 12). Do get in touch with us for more information.
