Carsphairn Craft Group

The Craft Group was set up in 2013 to give like-minded people somewhere to meet, craft, chat and have a cuppa.

Since then it has gone from strength to strength, meeting every Friday except between Christmas and New Year.

There are usually between 8 and 10 of us all working away on our projects.

There are spinners, embroiderers, knitters, crocheters and weavers. Some even do all of it!

So if you're having bother with a craft project, there's a good chance someone will be able to help, or we'll know someone who can.

Since 2015 we've been having informal workshops to let us all try new crafts. Have a look at the gallery below for examples of our work.
