About Creative Breaks

make it yourself – take it home
keep it, treasure it; give it with pride

Creative breaks was set up in 2001 to promote courses run by skilled craftspeople.
The group offer courses in a wide variety of traditional and contemporary arts and crafts. Our members are all experts in their own fields and are experienced in passing on their skills and enthusiasm.
