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 so you can learn a new skill, brush up on an old one and have a unique evening out...

Weaving Workshop

Weaving is a wonderful craft as it doesn’t require lots of tools and materials, it’s portable, and once you get into the rhythm of it it’s almost meditative.

In this beginner’s weaving class you will learn all the basics, including how to warp your loom ready to weave, how to choose which yarns to use, basic weaving techniques including rya knots and soumak weave, and how to end your piece.

We will also help troubleshoot some common weaving problems, and provide you with lots of tips and tricks to have you weaving like a pro in no time at all. You will make a beautiful woven wall hanging, which you will be able to customise to your own tastes, choosing from a huge selection of yarn colours and textures.

Cost £35 per person (plus booking fee)
12 places available
