Around this time of year we can see the flowers trying to make their first appearance and the air smelling a bit more refreshing and like there is new life living in it, rather than just coldness and car fumes. With this gentle turn of the season, why not embrace that change in energy and pick up a creative pastime. Hidden among the suburban sprawl of North Leeds the Beck and Call are hosting regular Monday night craft workshops.
Having teamed up with craft collective Cut and Curve, this ultimate cosy pub will be encouraging people to start their week creatively with a programme of easy and fun craft activities. Each evening you’ll learn a new skill and create something beautiful that you can take away the same night.
skills that you can use and develop at home giving you a solid grounding for future creative pursuits
Led by Beccy from Cut and Curve, a keen crafter, maker and facilitator, you will have the opportunity to decorate ceramic plates, print t-shirts and tote bags, build your own colourful pom pom wreaths and much more. Each activity will teach you core skills that you can use and develop at home, giving you a solid grounding for future creative pursuits.
It’s a great way to get into crafts if you’re a first timer, however, for those with a bit more experience it can also be a more sociable space in which to broaden your crafting skills and meet like-minded makers. Whatever level you are at, everyone is welcome. The aim of these sessions is to enjoy the process of making and take a step away from your normal routine, rather than designing something magnificent and beautiful.
