Making can have a positive impact on our lives. It can create space to socialise, and allow for the learning of new skills and sharing of ideas.

Craft has always been treasured within the WI. The making of a crafted artefact tells and records stories, it can protect our heritage, pass on traditional skills and embrace new and exciting approaches.

Craft brings together communities, generations and cultures.  Put craft together with a coffee, slice of cake and a good laugh.  It can also be the perfect medium to discuss issues that affect women.  Difficult subjects are always easier to talk about when making. 

So no matter if you are a beginner or a more experienced maker craft can change lives!  So get making today!
