Tuesday 28th September Arts&Crafts at Kenn Village Hall 10:30AM

This month’s Arts&Crafts activity is creative canvases, this is lots of different designs on canvases- mixing paints, materials and different items together to finish with a lovely picture. The session will start at 10:30AM, we will then provide a lunch between 13:00-14:00 and then the session will continue. You can stay for as long as you like. If we have a very high demand, we will have to split into 2 sessions an AM and PM but we will let everyone know if that happens. There is a £10 payment solely goes to Sandie who runs the group, for her time and all of the materials. This group is always so popular so please book on as Sandie will also need to buy all the canvases for the right amount of people. As always the session will run from Kenn Village Hall in Clevedon.
