Papercraft and More


Activity

We are a friendly, small group of ladies enjoying the challenge of learning new skills, who would welcome new members.  We have a go at various crafts: paper folding, beading, using pins and sequins to decorate shapes and look forward to displaying our efforts at the Open Morning.  We are starting to make decorations and cards for Christmas.

Where and when

We meet at 10am on the first and third Friday of the month in Foxton Village Hall, Middle Street, Foxton.
