What to expect
Fantastic Cards & Crafts run two small, relaxed card making and crafts groups in Cambridge. No experience is needed, they will demonstrate new techniques at the start of each session and you can then enjoy creating cards and crafts at your own pace.
The first group is held in the Meeting Room at Arbury Community Centre. It runs fortnightly on Mondays between 3.30-5.30pm. It covers card making techniques include iris folding, quilling, 3d decoupage and heat embossing, and crafts techniques including felt softie making, jewellery making and positive type art.
The second group is held in the Hayman Room at The EDGE Café on Mill Road. It runs once a month on Saturdays, between 11am-1pm. It covers card making techniques include iris folding, quilling, 3d decoupage, felt and mixed media.
Spaces are limited so you will need to book a place for one or more of the sessions by emailing [email protected] – you will then receive an email confirming your place. If you would like to receive information about which technique they will be covering on each date you can send them an email or visit their Facebook page.
Fantastic Cards & Crafts was started by a group of friends who know from their own experience just how much connecting with others and finding a creative hobby can benefit mental health and wellbeing. The groups offer an opportunity to combat loneliness and be immersed in a fun, mindful activity whilst in the company of a friendly group.
This activity is free to attend and all materials are provided.
