Feel Good Fridays

Our funding for the free craft club (Feel Good Fridays) has ended.  However the craft club was such a success that we as an organisation have made the decision to continue with the club using our own fundraising activities and donations.  The Sessions will continue to be available to anyone who might benefit from the therapeutic aspects of the craft club.   Sessions are Free but we suggest a donation of £2.50 per session towards materials.

Our craft club is called Feel Good Fridays. The craft club is open to all ages and abilities, everyone is welcome to attend but places will be limited to 15.  We have seen how much impact arts and crafts can have on peoples wellbeing and mental health.  If you are feeling lonely, isolated, if you have been struggling with anxiety, depression or just want to meet people or craft in company then this is the club for you.

The club runs in our teaching room here at Long Eaton Art Room.  We are fully accessible, heated and have air conditioning.  Refreshments will be available during the club.

We cover a different craft each week which will be taught by a professional artist.  All materials will be provided, donations towards materials will be gratefully appreciated but not formally necessary.

Children and vulnerable adults will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.

If you would like to attend and have questions please do get in touch.

If you know someone who would benefit from coming to our Friday craft club please pass on our details.
