    About your host, Tea & Crafting

    The writing is on the wall, creativity is contagious and Tea & Crafting is certainly doing everything to pass on the bug!

    Tea & Crafting is a group of friendly artists who are partial to a bit of old-fashioned craftsmanship with a modern twist. If your undiscovered creative side is simply yarn-ing (😜 ) to get out, then join one of its craft workshops where crafty souls can congregate to do just that.

    Expect to learn new skills, show off creations and have a lot of fun!

    Work in friendly, small groups then throw in some top-notch guidance and a nice cup of tea, and you have got a Tea & Crafting classic. You’ll learn all the basics and leave with some goodies that you’ve made too.
