Next Steps – Make Do & Create

We have been really pleased to work with the Next Steps charity, who have run regular craft activities for us at Farndale Village Hall.

Our tutor Helen, worked really hard to run these sessions, and show us a range of different types of crafts.

We each made an item of craft that we could take home and felt proud of ourselves for making!  We first began these craft sessions in June 2019, and met up each fortnight until the Coronavirus hit in March 2020.  We then re-started sessions in May 2021, until the end of the summer term in July 2021.

We have tried crafts such as felt making, decoupage, paper folding, making pin boards, Christmas wreaths, and macrame amongst others!

We have also started an ongoing project, making and decorating bags for patients at St Leonard Hospice in York and St Catherines in Scarborough.  This is part of a scheme called ‘Making for Charity’ that works with crafting groups like ours across the country.

Patients at the hospices/care homes use the bags we make to carry medical syringes, plus small pouches for rings, and personal effects bags for passing personal items to relatives.

Update: July 2021.

Craft sessions will return from 9th September, still running fortnightly on Thursdays from 1.00pm to 3.00pm.  We will be deciding on projects to run from the first session back in September.

If you’d like more information please contact Gill –   If you’ve not been before but would like to come, please get in touch so we know for numbers.

The next set of dates are:

Thursday 9th September

Thursday 23rd September

Thursday 7th October
