Crafting at the Whitworth

Me and my friends, Bernie and Rachel, are always looking for interesting things to do in Manchester other than shopping. We've tried afternoon tea, art exhibitions and the theatre.

Last year I went with Bernie to Crafternoon Tea  at the Whitworth Art Gallery. For the bargain price of £5, you get a 2 hour craft session and a cup of tea. We decided it was time to pay a return visit.

Zoe James led the session and showed us how to create a wreath from foam pipe insulation. We covered our wreath with strips of paper cut from old books and magazines, then decorated them with paper flowers, old stamps and buttons. I loved it! What can be more fun than an afternoon spent cutting and sticking? I'm sure we'll be back to try other crafts sometime soon.
