Michelle Freeman, who last year started The Crafty Foxes company offering workshops in and around Bury St Edmunds, has teamed up with art shop Denny Bros for the initiative.

The Crafty Kids Club will run on the last Saturday afternoon of every month at Denny Bros’ King Street premises.

The hour-long workshops are open to children aged seven upwards and cost £5.

They will begin on February 23 with a Mother’s Day gift workshop, where children can decorate a vase or tea light holder. Visit www.thecrafty foxes.co.uk for details.
