DIY Arts & Crafts Cafe Relaunched!

Thanks to funding from the Kent Police Property Fund, we’ve secured our monthly arts and crafts cafe for the next 12 months.

It takes place on the fourth Thursday in the month from 1.30-3.30pm, and the additional funding will allow us to buy more specific craft materials to work with.

Just £2 per person includes refreshments. You can bring along your own project to work on, anything from crochet to painting, or you can use from our stock. And if you just want to drop in for a cuppa, that’s absolutely fine too!

We look forward to seeing you 🙂


The D.I.Y Arts & Crafts Cafe opens for business

Some of our regulars have been desperate to get arty and crafty for a while now, so we’re opening up the cafe on the 4th Thursday in the month for a skill sharing bonanza!

You can bring along your own activity (knitting, colouring books, crochet, drawing pad?) – or even your favourite book. We’ll supply materials for collage and other activities, plus each month, one of our regular customers will demonstrate their own skill, giving you the opportunity to join in too.

The first session (February 22) will see Vicki showcase cake decorations for Easter and all are welcome to work with her. Or as advised above, simply bring along your own activity to share with others, or just enjoy the company.

The session will run from 1.30-3.30pm and there will be a small fee of £2 to cover materials, but tea and coffee is included.

We look forward to seeing you.

We look forward to seeing you!
