COLOUR CALM FOR ADULTS
Colouring for adults is extremely therapeutic and reduces stress. Some research suggests that it has the same benefits as meditation. We provide all the materials, the pencils and colouring sheets so if you need a ‘time out’ come along to Gainsborough Library on a Tuesday afternoon between 1.00pm and 4.00pm. Colouring isn’t just for kids!”
MESSY PLAY AND STORY TIME FOR PRE – SCHOOL
Join us for Messy Play and stories every Friday morning during term time 10.15am – 11.00am. Messy Play plays an important part in early education. As well as being lots of fun it helps young children learn and develop a variety of skills. They can enjoy being creative and they can play and interact with other children. We’ve introduced these free weekly sessions especially for pre-school children. It’s good for parents too as they get the chance to be messy and creative as well!
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Whether you haven’t touched a needle since leaving school or are a regular stitcher, meet fellow embroiderers and share your latest project, handy tips and inspiration. Every second Wednesday of the month and every fourth Friday 2pm to 4pm.
