For the new season, we are offering new online learning from the Share Shop, and hope to bring you face to face workshops and classes with small numbers as soon as we’re able.

We are still running our popular Stitch Social on alternate Thursday afternoons, and plan to add some weekend sessions soon.

We’ve also got some great Takeaway Box workshops, with everything you need to make a great stitched project, one to keep and one to add to a beautiful Ladywood tapestry.

Our new workshops, Art for Everyone and Family Crafts, will be a series of short video workshops that you can watch whenever you like, shared weekly via our YouTube channel. We’ll also host a monthly Zoom session where we can share our work, chat, get ideas and have craft-in sessions. As soon as we’re able to, we will bring these activities live into the shop.

The fantastic series of Grow Together and Sing Together online workshops, hosted by Sam and Ellie, have now come to an end, but you are still invited to join the WhatsApp group to share inspiration, ideas, projects and plans…

Look out for more Grow and Sing activities coming soon, online, outdoors and in the shop!

Three new online learning groups!

This Winter, we’re launching three fun, sociable online learning groups as part of our Ladywood Share Shop programme of learning and sharing.

You can join in Stitch, Sing and Grow groups, via a WhatsApp forum and weekly online social meet-ups. They are free to join, for all ages and abilities and you don’t need to commit to coming every time, just join when you want to and you’ll always be welcome!

To join Stitch, Grow or Sing groups by email, message us with the form below…
