Free event!

Open to Visually Impaired children and siblings aged 7+ (we will need parental consent for children to join and some activities may need parents’ supervision).

It’s time to take your minds off other things by getting your hands busy and creativity flowing!

Join us for this accessible arts and crafts session, which uses odds and ends from around the home and will be hosted by our fab mentor Georgina aka George, resident crafty person, crochet and cross stitch Queen!

George is a firm believer that arts and crafts can be accessible to everyone, are a great way of reducing stress and can also be brilliant for developing an interesting hobby and new skills.

If you would like to see more craft sessions with George doing other things, like pom-pom making, crochet, cross-stitch…then please let us know and we’ll make it happen! Email events@look-uk.org
