Leisure » Creative Arts Group

This group meets monthly under the leadership of Bruce Driver, both to paint and to enjoy many different kinds of handiwork. These include knitting, bead and button work, sewing, embroidery and  patchwork. Occasionally there are trips out to paint in the open air or for one of Bruce’s guided tours of an art gallery.
