St Wilfrid’s Hospice is holding Crafty Friday, a local arts event which takes place in the Street Café area of the hospice each week.
The organisers aim to put on a variety of creative sessions which in the past have included cake decorating, storytelling, origami and illustration.
These workshops are run by local artists, community volunteers and staff with specialist skills.
There’s no need to book and they are free to attend, just turn up and have fun.
Visitors can also make the most of the hospice café with a variety of refreshments on offer.
Aimed at young families, local residents or those wanting to learn a new skill these sessions are a great way to spend Friday’s and meet new people.
They take place every week from 10.30am and 2.30pm at the hospice on Broadwater Way, near Sainsbury’s in Hampden Park.
On May 20, Will Hardie, star of Channel Four television show Amazing Spaces.
Will is coming to the hospice to talk about his work and some of the projects that he has been involved with.
Kara Bishop, chief executive, said, “We are delighted to invite Will Hardie in for one of our Crafty Friday sessions. His work on the show is so exciting, so we are very pleased that he is coming in to explain to people a bit more about what he does. Crafty Friday is part of our Creative Engagement programme, aimed at encouraging new people to come in and see St Wilfrid’s for themselves.”
