Come & Try 

Evening twilight sessions delivered by the Crafts Council, the national charity for craft

Each twilight offers a stand-alone evening of creativity, peer conversations and refreshments, and is designed to support playful exploration, reimagining craft for the classroom as well as for personal enjoyment and enrichment.

No prior experience is needed for any of these sessions, which will be suitable for complete beginners as well as for those interested in rekindling past interests. We aim for these sessions to be fun, supportive and enjoyable, as well as beneficial to your creative classroom practice.

Participants at each session will:

  • Work with experts in each craft discipline and craft educators
  • Gain confidence in the use of craft
  • Enjoy conversations with peers over drinks and snacks
  • Take away resources to use in the classroom and craft materials to practice with
