North Devon Hospice's 12 Days of Craftmas!

From Thursday 10th December - Monday 21st December, we will be teaming up with some fabulous local crafters and creators to bring you 12 interactive, online workshops tailored for both adults and children.

During a time when we are unable to see our loved ones as we would do normally at this time of year, we are excited to bring everyone together remotely and guarantee to add some extra festive fun to your household on the run up to the big day itself!

We have a wide variety of workshops available over the course of our 12 Days of Craftmas. So whether you would like to learn how to make a Poinsettia out of paper, create treat jars for your homemade gifts or bake a delicious dish perfect for the Christmas table - we have it all covered!

Each of our workshops will run on Zoom, start at 6pm each evening and run for approximately 45-60 minutes each. Gather your friends and family together, enjoy some light entertainment in the comfort of your own home while our hosts talk you through a step by step guide on how to create your festive masterpieces.

Simply choose your 12 Days of Craftmas workshop (or workshops!) from the list below, click on the button to 'Sign Up' and we will give you all the information you will need for your chosen activity. Workshops are only £5 each so please share with your friends and family and help support North Devon Hospice this festive season. 

Every penny raised will go towards ensuring that we can be there for local families this year, some of whom will be sadly facing their final Christmas together - thank you for supporting us.

All our workshops have been designed to be fun for both adults and children, we strongly recommend that children are supervised throughout all sessions.

Happy creating!
