Creative Community Crafting Sessions

At Fabrik, it’s our pleasure to offer a series of no-cost community crafting session as a part of our Creative Recovery program. Each session has a different crafting focus and is hosted by a friendly volunteer who also doubles as a crafting mentor (aka ‘brains-trust’), ready and willing to share expertise should you need. Feel welcome to bring along your crafting work in progress and craft  with supportive and creative company.

All skill levels are welcome, even if you are a beginner you are absolutely welcome to come along and seek crafting support from the friendly expert(s) in the room.

While Fabrik’s buildings are closed for redevelopment, these sessions are held at the Bushland Park clubrooms, overlooking the water. Bushland Park is located at 27 Kenton Valley Road, Lobethal with the carpark entry opposite Brettig Road. (Also shown as Lobethal Bushland park Nature Playground by Google maps).

It’s important to share that during the summer months, we’ll be taking our cues from the Fire Danger Ratings updates from the Bureau of Meteorology site. When an Extreme (75-99) or Catastrophic Fire Danger Rating is declared for the Mt Lofty Ranges, classes or groups planned by Fabrik for Bushland Park will be cancelled (with rescheduling an option).
