If you feel a bit of creativity coming on then there is the perfect opportunity to express it coming up at Retford Hub. This could be the beginning of a whole new, satisfying hobby.
Issy Szczecinski is an independent ‘Stampin’ Up!’ demonstrator and she runs papercraft classes in Retford based in the art gallery at the Hub, Churchgate. All her classes are suitable for both beginners and experienced crafters alike. Issy has enjoyed ‘doing, making, cutting and sticking’ from a very early age and she particularly enjoys creative projects that involve paper and ink. She has been a demonstrator for five years and it is clear that she loves to share her passion for papercraft with others.
Issy will hold sessions at the Hub in June on the following dates: Monday 5th June from 7.00pm to 9.00pm, Wednesday 21st from 7.00pm to 9.00pm and Thursday 22nd from 10.00am to 12.00pm.
Issy’s classes are £10 per session and include all materials, tuition as well as light refreshments. Her classes are extremely popular and therefore booking is essential. Contact Issy direct to book on 07788 722099, message her or look at the events on her Facebook page www.facebook.com/Issycraftybees, or have a look at her website www.issycraftybees.stampinup.net, which includes a blog, events and a shop.
Retford Hub is run entirely by volunteers and is non-profit-making. It aims to promote local arts, attract tourists, support local business and provide an arts centre for the people of Retford. There are currently 35 volunteers, some of whom work regular shifts, others help out just occasionally, some get involved in the ‘back office’, others simply like to meet and help the public in a friendly, relaxed environment. Volunteers at The Hub are given an opportunity to learn, develop new skills or share their existing experience and knowledge. The Hub can provide training, both in-house and through National Qualifications.
We need more people to join us! If you would like to get involved or if you know anyone who would gain from the benefits offered through volunteering then come and join an organisation that is dedicated to the prosperity of our town.
