Retford Arts Hub

by | 5 October 2023 | Art, Hobbies, Retford

Retford Arts Hub holiday arts and crafts sessions were enjoyed by local children and reported to be fabulous! All sessions were full of enthusiastic children.

A variety of topics explored colour and shape, house painting and decorating (in miniature of course!) as well as yarn mandalas and graphic pen art.

There will be similar sessions during the October half term and Christmas holidays, all run by a team of volunteers.

There are opportunities for new volunteers to join the team in helping to run these lively sessions. So, if you are interested in joining the friendly volunteer team, please email or call into the shop at 11 Churchgate, Retford to chat to one of the team. Shop opening hours: Monday to Saturday 10.00am to 4.00pm, Tuesdays 10.00am to 1.00pm.
