Learn how to embroider or kickstart your crafting at these free sessions for local older adults, where you can find a new hobby and meet people along the way.

Skylark Sessions is our new creative programme where each six-week-long series dives into a different art form.

For our first series, New Threads, we’re exploring how to work with textiles and embroidery techniques.

Join us to connect with renowned artists who specialise in textiles and delve into the crafts of making and weaving.

Sessions are free and open to adults aged 50+ who live locally to us, looking to connect and support their wellbeing through creativity and community.
