Craft workshops run every month throughout the year and are available to book through Midtown Makers. Workshops available include:

Basic & advanced jewellery making, Polymer clay, Felting, Wire work, Story books, Beginners & advanced embroidery and crochet, Sewing, Acrylic painting, Ceramics, Card making, Purse making, Silk scarf making, Soap making, Decoupage, Weaving, Mosaics, Power painting, Applique , Beginners photography etc.

Most workshops, last between an average of 1 - 2 hours, except for some of the felting workshops
Some workshops are suitable from age 8 upwards, but generally 12+ with adult supervision.
Every workshop has between 4 - 10 people but each workshop differs.

Each workshop participant, will get materials included as well as instructions and help to successfully create their pieces. Each person taking part goes home with a piece of work created by themselves (unless piece has to be fired as in clay and ceramics, or if piece of work is part of a multi workshop.)

Midtown Makers participate annually in August Craft Month so keep an eye out for special workshops happening then.
