Articulate is a unique, vibrant and friendly club for 18+ which offers a wide range of different crafts and art, all under one roof. Articulate embraces all skill levels of artists and crafters in a creative & supportive community environment.

 

  • We have a passion for learning new skills and sharing what we know. 

  • We believe cost should not limit your creativity so our volunteer-led club aims to keep costs as low as possible.  
     

So, whether you are an absolute beginner looking for somewhere to get started or experienced and highly skilled, our doors are open to you.

Meetings are fortnightly on a Friday evening and you can join us at any time from 6 pm through to 9 pm. Please see our Calendar for the dates in 2019. Please note we don't take bookings for workshops via email; only in person on a club night.

At each club night, there are three choices –

  1. Join a workshop to learn a new craft. Workshop places are booked in advance if there is a limit on the number of places but we also have "drop-in" sessions with no limits. Any additional costs are minimal to cover the cost of resources. Please be at the club by 6.15 pm as the workshops start at 6.30 pm.

  2. Work alongside one of our members who can introduce you to a new skill or help with an existing project.

  3. Bring your own projects and enjoy a relaxed social evening with refreshments and raffle.
