What to expect
Fantastic Cards Cambridge is a community card making group for adults. It is a small, relaxed group that meets every other Monday afternoon from 3.30pm – 5:30pm. At each group there is a focus on a different technique, for example quilling or 3D decoupage. Attendees have a range of levels of card making experience. Absolute beginners are very welcome – come along and try something new!
The group meets in the Meeting Room at Arbury Community Centre. There is free parking outside the venue. There is full disabled access and toilets.
You need to book ahead to attend a session. Email Chris and Laura on [email protected] to book your place, or pop down when the group is on to book, if you don’t have access to email. Visit the Fantastic Cards Cambridge Facebook page to find out more.
Fantastic Cards was started by a group of friends with lived experience of mental health who enjoy arts and crafts. With support from CPSL Mind’s Good Life Fund they set up this group as a way of helping improve wellbeing through creativity and togetherness. The group offers an opportunity for people to get out and about and socially interact with others, reducing social isolation and loneliness. It helps people engage in a meaningful and productive activity and learn new skills, which can increase confidence and self-esteem.
This activity is free to attend and you can go to as many of the groups as you wish.
