Crafternoon, 1 December 2018

Kick off the festive season by hosting a Christmas Crafternoon on 1 December.

This December, get together with friends, enjoy some festive treats, and make your very own Christmas cards, wrapping paper and festive decorations.

You’ll be amazed at how stimulating, rewarding and downright enjoyable getting crafty with a bunch of friends can be. Especially when you’re doing it for a really good cause.

You don't need any special skills or previous crafting experience, because the Mind Crafternoon team is here to provide all the tips, pointers and practical support you could ever need.

Host a social get together with a difference with your very own Christmas Crafternoon on Saturday 1 December, and raise funds for Mind, the UK’s leading mental health charity.
