There’s a crafty chance for children and young adults to develop their arts and crafts skills at Stevenage Museum.

For children aged eight to 12 with a passion for art, there is a monthly art club which will run from 10.30am to 12noon on Saturdays.

Each month a different theme will be explored with previous workshops focusing on still life and using charcoal and acrylics.

The next class is on Saturday morning, with further sessions planned on March 7, April 11 and May 2.

Each workshop costs £2 and booking in advance is advised.

Young people aged 17 and over looking to have fun and learn a new craft skill are catered for, too – on Saturday, February 14 and the following week they can get to grips with print making (2pm to 4pm) while decorative stitching will be the subject at the same times on April 11 and 18. Both sessions are ideal for beginners or more experienced crafters, and all materials are provided. Each session costs £8 and again reserving a space would be a good idea.

To find out more, call the museum in St George’s Way on 01438 218881. The children’s art club has a New Year offer of booking one place and getting one for free – quote the reference ARTCLUB15 when booking to receive the discount.
