We are here to help make sure your experience at Reading University is enjoyable, exciting and to give you the opportunity to have a relaxing break from University studies. 

All the materials for each of the sessions are provided and you take what you create away with you!

Membership is only £10 for the whole year, alternatively you can pay-as-you-come- only £2 per session!

Alongside our weekly meetings we also organise craft socials such as pottery painting and ice cream socials, as well as our big summer event at the end of the year (like cream tea on a barge).
