Derby

Creative Crafts

We had our three pilot meetings, in July, August and September and are now meeting every two weeks, with future dates being 30 November and then our Fuddle in December. January 11 we are not able to meet as usual so will plan some sort of get-together elsewhere, then we'll be back to CGCC on 25 January.

In September we enjoyed a trip to the new Museum of Making (formally The Silk Mill), in Derby. Other years we've been to The Pickford's House in Friargate, also to Ruddington Framework Knitters Museum.

In the past we've taken part in several general projects, such as when we joined Derby University in the 'Remembering Together, making red, white (for peace) and purple poppies (to represent animals involved in conflicts). Unfortunately they were unable to supply us with the photos.

Our 'Shoes' banner, inspired by our trip to the Vivienne Westwood Exhibition at the Pickford's House was displayed on the Derby Museums' Facebook page and was on show at the Pickford's House for the whole of May 2018.

And we made a Derby u3a publicity banner in 2015 to celebrate 30 years of Derby u3a.

If you enjoy making things then this is the place to be: it's the sort of group where if you don't have what you need, someone will be happy to help, regulations allowing.
