Come and try something new at ZigZags!

Now's the perfect time to start thinking ahead to the Autumn and what new hobbies you might like to have a go at. Any kind of crafting takes us out of ourselves and is the perfect way to practise mindfulness and de-stress from our busy lives. Here's what we've got planned for the next month or so, or you can browse all of our classes here.

Everybody's welcome at our weekly social 'Needles and Natter' session, every Thursday afternoon, between 2 and 4 o'clock, so please come and join us.

Do you have many unfinished 'Works In Progress'? Don't forget our UFO days to come and use our space to work - uninterrupted! The next one is Friday 31st August.

If you would like to hire our space to work or for a group or a function, or if you would like us to plan a private workshop or party for a group, then please feel free to contact us on zigzags@hotmail.co.uk or phone us on 01952 814962 and we'll see what we can do.
