Craft clubs, classes, workshops, community artwork and events

We specialise in running craft-based events for adults, particularly those affected by loneliness and social isolation. We also work with elderly residents in care homes or sheltered housing, and in community or healthcare settings.

We will take referrals from NHS Link Workers, healthcare professionals and local agencies, although we will always have to ascertain the level of support that individuals may need if they attend our events. Click the button to find out more.

Craft clubs

Pink House Craft Clubs offer a regular creative outlet for adults, particularly those affected by loneliness and social isolation.  The clubs allow people to meet and make friends while learning new skills. It’s a great way to boost self-confidence and improve self-esteem.

We run our craft clubs in community venues such as libraries, village halls or residential homes. The sessions are friendly and relaxing. From silk painting to sewing or papercrafts, all the activities are easy to do and no previous knowledge is needed.

Classes and workshops

Our classes and workshops boost wellbeing. It’s not just about being creative and learning new skills, but about meeting and making friends. 

We are happy to manage one-off classes, where everyone aims to complete one craft activity in a session. Or we can organise a series of workshops, where a craft activity might be completed over several sessions. Either way, the crafts offered will be suitable for all abilities and we can adapt them for special needs. 

Community events

For many people living in rural areas loneliness has become a way of life, with ongoing cuts to services and public transport making things worse.

A lot of villages already organise coffee mornings and afternoon teas for their older residents and their carers, and Pink House Arts can bring new energy to these. Combining crafts and activities in a social event breaks down barriers and is a way to start new conversations and strengthen social ties.

Community artwork

Working together as a group to create artwork for a community space is enormously rewarding for everyone involved. Whether it’s to mark a local anniversary, national event, or just for decoration, a collaborative craft project creates something completely unique and is a way to build friendships.

We believe crafts bring people together and we can help you plan, design and organise a group project to create artwork for venues such as village and church halls, community centres, residential homes, sheltered housing or healthcare settings.

What a successful 6 weeks! We wanted to encourage more of our less able-bodied residents to socialise and try something new. Your classes produced fabulous results and I do believe we have some budding artists amongst us!

I cannot thank you enough for the craft club. It’s been an excellent distraction and given me new interests and crafts to try at home – all at a time in my life when I desperately need both.

The craft club has been a lifesaver. I so enjoy coming along, meeting new people and learning new skills. The meetings lift my spirits.

I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy a craft club but this has changed my mind. It’s been fun trying new things and sometimes I even feel proud of what I’ve made! It’s a reason to get out of the house and I enjoy the company very much.
