Sadly, the current Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc across the United Kingdom (indeed the world) and, like the majority of events businesses, we have had to postpone or cancel a lot of courses, workshops and weekend retreats until it's clear that life can return to something like the normalcy we all once enjoyed.

 

On this page you'll find details of planned courses for 2020, assuming the UK Government releases the social distancing measures to allow small groups of people to once again meet in closed spaces. Where possible we are postponing courses/workshops/retreats until later this year; where this is not deemed practical we have cancelled courses/workshops/retreats with a view to re-booking venues in 2021 once everyone is up & running again and we are able to confidently make forward plans.

We trust this keeps you appraised of the current situation regards all CraftyMonkies courses, workshops and weekend retreats, but if you have any queries at all please contact us via email:-

hello@craftymonkies.com.

On another front, on Friday 5th June 2020 we also launched the exciting new Take 3 Private Member Club which people can sign up to via a Monthly (£9.99) or Annual (£99.90, meaning TWO months FREE!) subscription. Among other things, the Take 3 Private Member Club will feature regular Video Tutorials teaching Techniques & Projects, Bonus Content relevant to the main Techniques & Projects, Competition Giveaways, Monkie Chats with a wide range of talented crafters, a private-access Facebook Group and Q&A sessions with our carefully-selected and highly respected tutors! Be sure to check it out!...
