We have an exciting schedule of events planned for 2015, and will continue to add more throughout the year – so check back here regularly to make sure you don’t miss out!


Africa Day – Saturday 27th June 2015

Come and join us at our Head Office and experience a taste of Africa! This is your chance to look around our workshop, take part in some African drumming and see some beautiful artwork. You’ll also be able to enjoy a variety of entertainment and refreshments, find a bargain from our tool, haberdashery and plant stalls and maybe win a prize or two!

Further details to follow shortly.

Craft to Craft Workshops

All workshops are £10 and materials are supplied – just bring yourself! Each class takes place from 2 – 4pm. To book onto one of the classes please call us on 02380 869697 or email

16 April – Dorset Buttons
Embroidered around a ring in yarn or embroidery silk, Dorset Buttons are colourful, fun to make and can decorate clothing and accessories.

21 May – Padded Coat Hangers
Why not give one of your garments the special treatment? Come and make a pretty padded coat hanger to take away in a single session.

18 June – Button Necklaces
Make and take away a beautiful necklace, using coloured buttons. Back by popular demand!

16 July – Japanese Garden Squares
A circle becomes a square – all hand stitched. One can be prepared at the session and could form the start of a larger project.
