Would you like to learn a new hobby, or maybe revisit one that you used to do? We hold activity taster sessions each month where you can have a fun and enjoyable time trying a new activity, including:

  • Painting on silk
  • Painting with watercolours
  • Card making
  • Mindfulness
  • Flower arranging
  • Felting
  • Making craft boxes

You don't need to bring anything with you - all equipment and materials will be provided on the day. If you are able, we ask for a small donation of £3 towards the cost of materials for each session.


When is it? 2nd Monday each month, 1pm to 3.30pm

Who can attend? Anyone who has been bereaved, aged 18+ (no previous experience required)

Where is it held? Farleigh Hospice, North Court Road, Chelmsford CM1 7FH
