Kraftworks: Creative Volunteer

 Kraftworks: Creative Volunteer


Kraftworks is an adult arts and crafts project that has been running for nearly two years. Participants can attend on a drop-in basis, and take part in making with the group. The project has a focus on upcycling and many different skills are learned including sewing, uphoplstery, upcycling etc.. This project is based on turning everyday items into artistic or functional pieces. This volunteering opportunity would suit someone looking to volunteer with a friendly, creative and interactive project, and/or someone with arts experiences they would like to share.
