Keeping it Crafty Social - February

  • fortyfive vinyl cafe (map)

Loved the January Social - it was our busiest one yet! So many new faces and lots of the lovely regulars too - seeing all your lanterns lit up made me happy... quite a few people came on their own and left with new friends which also made me happy! A good start to 2019!

Now then, Feb. This time it's origami flowers! More info at the bottom of the event description... scroll on! Remember that fabulous Fortyfive are keeping their kitchen open from 6:30-7:30pm so you don’t have to rush to eat before you leave the house! A few of us plan to meet before the session starts at 6:30pm and get toasties! Join us pre-session, or get one when you arrive at the session if you like! Other than that, the usual drinks and cakes etc will be on sale of course!

Come along on the third Monday of the month 7-9pm for an evening of have-a-go crafts, a brew and a chat.

Each month we will bring a new craft to learn for a fiver, but you are welcome to come along and bring your own art/craft projects instead, or have a dabble with some arty materials (we ask for a £3 donation for this if you can spare it, but come and get involved anyway if you can't).

All ages and abilities very welcome, but children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult unless pre-arranged. You don't have to be an experienced artist or crafter, just come along and get making!

For those who haven't been before, Fortyfive Vinyl Cafe is a lovely place on Micklegate near where it meets Rougier Street (would it help if I said it was near Popworld?!) and serves good coffee, cake, other hot drinks and alcohol... with vegan and gluten free options too.



This month the social is on Monday 18th February, 7-9pm.

The have a go craft this month is origami flowers! Post-Valentines vibes... make up for forgotten flowers by crafting some tonight. Or maybe you're sick of everyone else getting flowers this week - make one for yourself and let it bloom!

Don't believe in all that Valentines crap? Just make a flower and bring in spring (believe!... it's nearly here...)

If you don't fancy origami, there will be art materials available to do your own thing with, or otherwise you are welcome to join us with your own craft project! Non-crafters are most welcome to just join for the cuppa and company, although we will definitely try to tempt you into getting crafty at some point.

A fiver for the have a go craft, or if you are coming with your own project/ doing your own thing with the basic art materials provided/ just coming for the social, we ask for a £3 donation if you can spare it - but come along anyway if you can't.

Bring your friends, make new friends, but most of all Keep it Crafty!!!
