Craft Group

History of the Craft Group

The WHA Craft Group started up in 2016 with the aims of:

  • creating gorgeous and saleable items for our stall at the Wokingham Winter Carnival (Sunday 24 November 2019)

  • giving us the opportunity to learn new skills from each other, whilst enjoying tea/coffee and cake together in the convivial setting of our ever-changing new look Trading Store.

  • meeting new people and making new friends through craft

Come join us!

We are a friendly bunch, and a warm welcome awaits any newcomers – do feel free to drop by any time to find out more, or just for chat. The kettle is always on! We meet from 7-9pm on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of every month from April to November down at the Ormonde Road Trading Store.

The plan for the rest of the meetings in 2019 are as follows:

  • Thursday 10 October - Craft Group - to continue with Show cup bags, spray some dried seed heads ready for 'tied bunches', check hyacinths planted up in baskets

  • Thursday 24 October - Craft Group - continue work started on 10 October and sort purchased wreaths - they need loops for hanging

  • Thursday 14 November - Craft Group - tie seed head bunches, finish all other projects, rota of helpers for Carnival

  • Thursday 21 November - Craft Group - final meeting of 2019 to finalise pricing and helpers rota for Winter Carnival stall, also insert Ferrero Rocher and Lindt balls

If you have a skill you'd like to share, or ideas of things we could make this year, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch with Penny at

The 2 litre plastic bottles which we made into colourful flowers during the summer formed part of our recycling projects stall in Wokingham market and have now been donated to WADE for their sensory garden.  We hope our flowers will add a splash of colour in the garden during the winter months and will be visible by WADE members from their Centre on the Reading Road.
