Events

We hold a variety of events including:

  • Members meetings

  • Craft fairs

  • Adult craft evenings

  • Children's craft sessions

Meetings

Members' meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month. If you would like to join us for one of these and find out more about the group, feel free to drop us a line - we would love to see you.

Craft Fairs

We hold a number of Craft Fairs in Mortimer each year - typically these include a Spring fair, an Autumn fair and a Christmas fair. Our fairs are unique in that all items at the fair are handcrafted, which guarantees a unique and original range of items. Unfortunately due to the Covid 19 pandemic we have been unable to arrange anything during 2020 but hope to be back with you all soon.

Children's Craft Sessions

Made in Mortimer hosts a free craft session for children aged 4-11 in Mortimer Library on the first Saturday of the month. These are on hold at the moment due to Covid 19 restrictions, but we will let you know when we are able to start these again.

Teaching sessions

We also arrange adult craft evenings on an ad hoc basis, which are open to all to attend. These are run by our members to allow them to share their crafting passion - events run to date include soap felting, paper weaving and origami jewellery. Please like our facebook page or sign up for our mailing list to keep up to date with our upcoming events.

Cabinet in Mortimer Library

We have a display cabinet (made by one of our members, the lovely David Glover) where you can see items made by members of Made in Mortimer.

The items in the cabinet are changed monthly. If there is something which catches your eye, please feel free to contact the individual directly - contact details are provided for all the items displayed. Please note - whilst the library is kind enough to allow us to display our items, they do not sell any items directly from the cabinet and cannot take any payments for items.

See below calendar for details of our upcoming events:
