Crafts – Sign Up for our Classes

The Hive


Crafts & Coffee sessions take place in The Hive at Workaid in Chesham on the first Wednesday of each month 10am – 12noon. Everyone is most welcome to join us for a cuppa and a chat while working on their current projects. Bring a friend too, and share ideas and skills. It’s a great morning of fun and friendship!

Crafts & Coffee demonstrations and workshops take place on the third Wednesday of each month 10am -12noon. These are led by experienced practising artists and crafts people to provide tasters in a wide variety of subjects – from wood sculpture to textiles, teddy bears, knitting, musical instruments, stump work embroidery, lace making, straw platting, crochet, card making, sewing and knitting machines, and many more exciting topics. It’s a chance to work with eminent tutors, many with a national and even international reputation.

Do get in touch with us if you could contribute to this programme of crafts or if you have ideas for new topics.

The Crafts & Coffee programme also offers short courses as follow ups to the tasters, in response to interest in specific subjects. For all enquiries please email

The HIVE at Workaid is a very good space for arts and crafts and it’s available for small private arts and crafts groups (Max 12). Do get in touch with us for more information.

Time Credits: Workaid has a limited number of places available for most sessions that can be paid for in Time Credits. Please contact for further details.

The second Annual Crafts Open Day took place on 2nd December 2017.  It was a chance for 14 different tutors and artists to demonstrate their crafts, allow visitors to join in, take a tour, enjoy refreshments, a raffle and sales tables.
