Crafty Tales: The Suitcase

The Courthouse Thirsk
Tuesday 8th October

When a strange creature comes to town, no one is sure where he's come from or why he's here. All he has is one suitcase but inside it is something absolutely priceless.

We can all get homesick from time to time. The craft this week is a good way to frame what's important to you

Crafty Tales is a new weekly crafting and storytelling session run by Story Craft Theatre.
Each session is designed around a brilliant picture book with interactive, multi-sensory and imaginative play. 
Watch your little one’s confidence, language and social skills grow, week by week, as they discover a wider world through story.
Aimed at ages 2-5
Tuesday 8th October 10:15 - 11:15 am Tickets Available: 12
Ticket(s) 4.00

Workshops at Rural Arts give you the opportunity to learn or develop an artistic skill in a relaxed, creative environment and are all suitable for beginners. Our tutors are friendly, passionate and have lots of experience and knowledge to share with you. We want your day with us to be relaxed, offering you a bit of escapism and the chance to get to know like-minded people (plus there’s the bonus of getting to take something you have lovingly made home with you!).

Get to know others in the group whilst enjoying a drink in the Rural Arts Café before heading through to the workshop to start getting creative! The Café will be open throughout the day for you to get drinks and delicious lunches and cakes. Visit the café page to view our menu.

Please bring an apron.
