We’ve got a fantastic summer of creative get-togethers ahead for older people in rural Mid Suffolk and Babergh as part of our Make, Do & Friend programme. All free of charge, and covering a wide variety of creative pursuits, there’s something for everyone!
Why not dip your toe in the water this summer and, if getting creative with friends and neighbours floats your boat, there are many more socials planned for the coming 12 months to look forward to.
Come along and get creative at our regular crafting socials. We welcome you to enjoy the company of friends and neighbours as you try your hand at crafts including printing, willow-weaving, paper-making, felt-making, and plaster-casting. The workshops are run by professional artists, with materials and refreshments provided – and it’s all free!
