Here you’ll find lots of satisfying, creative, hands-on sessions to try at home, like collage, floristry, folk art, pebble painting and printmaking. All sessions use materials and equipment that you’re likely to have at home or should be able to get hold of easily. To help you get prepared, we’ll tell you roughly how long each session will take and what you’ll need to take part. Then our expert Virtual Village Hall tutors will talk you through each step. Get ready to get creative and, most importantly, to admire your handiwork! We’d love to see any pictures of your creative Virtual Village Hall projects on our Facebook Group page. Some of the sessions have accompanying instruction sheets to print and download. 

Some craft activities involve using sharp tools, materials or equipment. Please take care to ensure that your health and safety are a priority when taking part in these sessions.
