Craft Club is an exciting initiative from Artcore that upskills selected workshop participants and provides them with the materials, equipment and advice so that they can create craft items to be sold in our new shop, Craftcore. The project demonstrates that creating and selling artworks can be a viable alternative career path that anyone can consider. Craft Club meets once a week and the Makers work in a given material to create a variety of products that are then sold in our shop.

Products made and sold so far have been mosaics, pinch pots, pendants, linocut tote bags, Christmas and Valentines decorations.
