April in the loop

Happy Easter

…spring is sprung and the year is flying by.


March evaporated before our very eyes and apologies if you have been trying to get hold of us and experienced a delay as we have been running at half our normal capacity for most of the month with either myself or Joanne being off sick.  Our new 2-day spinning course and 5 week portraiture course are now bookable online and macramé plant hangers should be up before our next newsletter.

Our Crafty Calendar

Our crafty school and holiday sessions are now back in full swing and there are places currently on all our sessions over Easter bookable on the website. We are also starting after school club at Hady Primary next term for KS1 bookable on our website and at Westfield Infants and Marsh Lane Primary bookable direct with the school.

This is a short and sweet newsletter as we have been trying to keep everything going this month and haven’t had the capacity to do it anymore. Hope to see you all next term as there is lots going on, scroll down for links to everything up until the end of May.
