‘Creative at Christmas’ Workshops with Muir Simpson

17th Dec 2019 1.00pm - 4.00pm

Following the success of our previous flower arranging and crafting courses, we are delighted to announce a brand new 6-week programme of creative workshops this November.

Creative at Christmas will be hosted once again by Muir Simpson (President of the North West Area of National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies) and will cover a different skill each week including flower arranging, needlework, art and crafts.

These fun, informal afternoons will offer a chance to make new friends and create some beautiful unique gifts in the run up to Christmas. Everyone – of all ages and abilities! – is welcome.

Workshops will take place every Tuesday between 1pm – 4pm, in the Gibberd Room of the Cathedral. Sessions are priced at £15 each, or a discounted rate of £60 for the full course.
