Welcome to Aber crafts!
Who we are: We are aber crafts, a friendly and inclusive society that aims to provide a creative space for people to participate in a range of crafting activities. We were founded in 2022 and had a very fun and successful year; winning “Best New society” and the “sustainability award”! We hope to continue this success in the year to come! Aber crafts welcomes all members regardless of race, religion, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, ability, or marital status.
Three images are shown. The first of which shows a group of our members in a garden. This was taken after our end of year meal at Newman's garden centre. Image two shows a room of people, some groups are talking, a couple of people are drawing, others are crocheting and someone is on their phone. The third image shows a group of people colouring around a table.
What’s included in your membership? For only five pounds you get access to all society materials, which includes a lot of yarn, knitting needles, crochet hooks, paint and brushes, glue guns and much more! You also gain access to weekly casual craft sessions, where you can bring your projects to work on and use our materials. As well as this, we run evening socials, like film nights, and have several exciting workshops planned, where instructions and materials are all provided.
