Crafty Foxes Kids Club moves to The Apex

The Crafty Foxes Kids Club is now operating out of The Apex.

It has moved from its previous site at Denny Bros, in Kings Road, and is now upstairs at the town centre venue.

I what has so far been a busy year there is more to come and Michelle Freeman, who runs the art group, said: “The aim is to provide a wider programme of crafty opportunities for more youngsters.

“No longer are such events limited to the last Saturday in the month but they are spread throughout the year. They take place during school holidays, as well as term time, and on both Saturday and Sunday. Sometimes sessions are aimed at children aged seven plus, 10 plus, teens and sometimes families as well as regular adult craft workshops for 14 plus.”

She said she is now aiming to provide an inclusive, comprehensive and creative programme for crafty kids in and around Bury St Edmunds.

She also now uses the LP bar as a venue to run craft parties for kids and adults, as well as the library, Oakes Barn and people’s homes.

Her workshop on Queens Road continues to host crafty gatherings and most recently she held a silver jewellery making and a mermaid inspired craft session.

Michelle is also at the Hadleigh show in a couple of weeks time making brussel sprout key rings and vegetable printing with 250 children followed by the Nearly Festival In Abbey gardens.

She added: “I have also been asked to run some workshops at Marlows Garden Centre and these include making a bird feeder, making gardeners hand cream and scented insect repellant citronella candles. I continue to run after schools club and this year I am at Bardwell, Abbotts Green and the Guildhall Feoffment.

“I hope to host some late night shopping events In The Apex in the run up to Christmas and hope to also be back at Blackthorpe Barn in their Christmas grotto.”
