Pride in Orkney and Orkney Blide Trust are putting together a crafting evening next week, we'd be delighted if you could join us!

There will be guided crafts including felting, braiding and making bunting for the bunting bonanza project we are running.

There will also be some supplies for folks to use if you want to get creative with an artwork all of your own.

Folks are also more than welcome to bring their own supplies or work in progress and come join in that way.

There will be tea, coffee and colouring pages provided, all ages welcome.

No cost but donations accepted
