Unfortunately due to our small premises, it may be some time before we can craft and party together on the raft.
Until then, we are looking into moving what we can, online. Stay Safe and well, me' hearty craft dafties!xx

Full refunds are given if we, for any reason, have to cancel your booking. We will endeavor to accommodate an alternative date for your party. A discount will be given on your future booking for the inconvenience of changing your original booking.
