What's Crafts & Laughs all about then?

‘Crafts & Laughs’ (said in a posh ‘Berkshire’ accent) or ‘Craffs ‘n’ Laffs’ (if you’re from further north) is an excuse to bring the local community together to first and foremost, have a fabulous time, but also to raise awareness and funds for better mental health (a non-profit event for Mind and this is the closest weekend to World Mental Health day).

We aim to:

1. Raise LOADSA money for Mind - our target is £3000

2. Host a positive and valuable activity for the community

What can you expect?

The afternoon will be choc-a-block with activities and entertainment to engage and experience.

Try your hand at various arts and crafts; make a paper pom pom, a bit of deft decopage, branch out to bracelet making, paint by numbers and more. If your masterpiece doesn't quite work out, we'll have a range of market traders on hand offering their wares.

There will be talks and demos to promote great wellbeing; yoga, essential oils, 15 min massage and expect there will be a big sing as one of the hosts is the Tuneless Choir.

We'll also tickle your chuckle chops with laughter yoga, improv and a host of funny people sharing their stories, poems and songs.

Where else can you learn to cartoon, upcycle a piece of pre-loved furniture, line dance and wang a welly, all in the space of six hours?

SOUNDS AMAZEBALLS - how much are tickets?*

  • EXPIRED - Early bird - up to one month before - £10 - EXPIRED

  • One month before - £12.50

  • On the day - £15 - but we plan to sell out before then!

*Please note that although LOTS of activities will be included in the ticket price, some activities will be subject to a nominal fee to cover the cost of the craft materials - but you're likely to leave with a masterpiece!

Will I get a physical ticket?

Until the BRIGHT ORANGE wrist bands are available, we'll capture your details on a list so when you arrive we'll band you up and you'll have access to:

  1. Six hours of Saturday afternoon fun.

  2. A HUGE range of activities to explore and experience (possibly some frustration if there's two things you want to do at the same time!)

  3. Aching cheeks from smiling so much from all the fun you've had AND the feelgood factor for supporting an amazing cause

You might even go away with some 'art' to stick on the fridge, or give to a loved one, just like when you were 4 and a half years old.

Can I bring my kids, my dog, my neighbour, my imaginary friend?

As there's so much great stuff going on in our local area for the kids, this one is aimed at the 'big kids' - it's not to say that children aren't welcome - it's just that we're not specifically catering for them.

How will I know the final line up?

Another reason we'll take your details is that we'll be in touch closer to the day to let you know the full line up of activities and if there are any workshops with limited places that you want to sign up to in advance.
