February 02 , 2016

February is Maker's Month at The Forum in Norwich. Sally and/or Joanne will be there Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays in the first two weeks and would love to see you. Cashy, our tatting and hairpin crochet tutor will be joining us during yarn week to answer your questions and demonstrate her skills.
During Makers' Month you'll see displays of work that will inspire you, meet enthusiasts at work showing how it's done, be able to have a go at something new, and to find out how to pursue a new hobby or craft.
