Crafty Co. is a group for school age art and craft-loving kids. We meet in term time on Wednesdays from 6-7pm. Each term we make a wide variety of craft items, often messy and always fun. The children also have a drink and biscuit, usually a short bible story and sometimes a game. For more information contact Kim Fenton on 0117 932 7403.
We encourage young people to challenge the barriers they face by engaging with the arts. Young people from all backgrounds, including those who are financially deprived or have experienced abuse, and those who live with a disability. We get them involved, thinking, doing, creating... discovering their potential. We aim high: we work with world class artists and high quality youth workers to inspire, challenge, encourage and support.
