Haslingfield Art and Craft Workshop

From September, Haslingfield children’s art workshop is changing. I have been running the regular art workshop on a Thursday after school for eight years and now feel it is time for a change. In that time many children have made some wonderful crafts and I have really enjoyed being part of their creativity. Please have a look at the Haslingfield Art and Craft website to view their work. I will still be organising workshops in the school holidays throughout the year so I will not be finishing completely. Meanwhile Christine Le Grand will be taking over the Thursday after school art club which will now be based in Haslingfield Primary school for key stage 2. You can contact Christine via or Haslingfield Primary School for more information. Prue van der Hoorn
