Befriending Craft Sessions, 2024

All are welcome to our friendly Craft Group for adults, held in the hall from 10am-12 noon on Wednesday 22nd May. Bring your own project, or join in with the group activity.

Don’t worry if you are out of practice or have never made things before. We will all learn together and share skills.

Please confirm your attendance with Laura; development@stpeteredinburgh.org.

All are welcome, bring a friend. Supported by Interfaith.

How did these sessions start? Between January and June 2023, St Peter’s, together with Edinburgh Interfaith, set up a very successful Befriending Craft Sessions for 6 months. This was something of an extension of our previous craft club, in which people brought along their personal projects and “put the world to rights” over tea and craft!

There was usually one craft session per month, with the option of a craft activity (or your own project), a cuppa and good conversation. Edinburgh Interfaith worked with some local organisations to refer individuals who were in need of social connection.

Activities have been Mandala Art, Pressed Flower Lanterns, Clay Pinch Pots, Origami Flowers, Mosaic Art, Bookmark Weaving, making lavender bags from lavender in the church garden, and Christmas Crafts. Great fun is had by all who attend!
