Workshops, Pop-Ups & Events

You can visit the cafe seven days a week to get your painting fix, but we also love to take Creative Biscuit on the road. If you have an event you'd like us to pop up at get in touch and check out below for events already in our diary.

On the second and fourth Thursday of every month we host a Late Night Painting evening, where we keep the doors open until 10pm (last admittance 8.30pm) so you can get making and creating - you can even bring your own drinks if you wish. 

We also regularly host craft workshops with expert tutors (such as weaving, printing, sewing and floral workshops to name a few) so you can learn a new skill, brush up on an old one and have a unique evening out...

Punch Needle Workshop

Create your own unique pieces of yarn-based art - anything you can draw you can turn into a punch needle piece.

It really is a crash course in punch needle!
