Keeping it Crafty Social - March

  • fortyfive vinyl cafe (map)

This time we're making pop up cards... perfect for Mother's Day but also quite exciting for the average day in all honesty. Scroll down for more info on the March social in the second half of the description!

PLEASE NOTE! We normally run the social every third Monday - however you may have noticed that this is the second Monday of March... I've got York Open Studios coming up in early April so anticipating some busy days art-making in the last couple of weeks of March - so this month we're doing it on the 11th when my head will be fully on Keeping it Crafty and pop up cards!!

Good ol' 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 11th March, 7-9pm.

The have a go craft this month is pop up cards!

What's better than a simple card, with a thoughtful message inside?

OBVIOUSLY a pop up card that blows your mind every time you open it!!!!!!!


Timely reminder that it's Mother's Day on 31st March so this is an opportunity to make something that shows you clearly outshine your siblings. And also that you love your mum.

If you don't fancy the pop up cards (but why?!), 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.

Kitchen open at Fortyfive from 6:30-7:30pm, and all the usual cake and drinks available all eve.
