I was lucky enough to be gifted this class from a friend. Was great fun even tackling the huge knitting needles !! Came home with a wonderful home made natural blanket. Kate the tutor was great. Would recommend. Cheers Michelle

Awesome creative gallery show-casing an inspiring creative community. I popped in on my way over to Tora for a surf weekend and had an awesome chat about community art while looking around all the beatiful creations. Looking forwards to joining a workshop! Liv
