Current Plan

The group meets throughout the year usually at the beginning of each month. Sessions are almost always held in the clubhouse on a Sunday from 13:00 to 15:00. The sessions are either a 'free activity' or a workshop led by a volunteer or an invited professional. Donations to cover tea and coffee are £1 for 'free activity' sessions and £2 for a workshop session to also cover the cost of materials. Any newcomers would be welcome.

Twelve sessions are usually held each year. A total of 94 sessions had taken place by the end of 2022. For a summary of these click here. Usually, photographs are taken and published in the Gallery.

During the disrupted year of 2020, we managed to hold 8 sessions - being a mixture of indoor or outdoor workshops, free activity sessions, and one virtual session.

Background

At about the time that husband, Clive, was elected Commodore of Seafarers, Gill Dakin decided to organise some craft workshops. The first session was in April 2013 and for the following five years there was a Craft Corner session approximately once every month throughout the sailing season. By the end of the 2017 season there had been a total of 37 sessions enjoyed by a varied but enthusiastic clientele.

At the end of 2017, Gill Dakin decided to hand over the reins. Her initiative, and hard work, meant there was strong support for the Craft Corner to continue. Viv Rance, our Social Secretary, took over the role of organising the sessions.
