Unleash Your Creative Spark at Our New Monthly Gathering!
Are you someone with a passion for creativity or perhaps you've been wanting to ignite that creative spark within you? Mast Cell Action are excited to announce a new, monthly event, starting on December 12th 2023 at 11am.
This is your chance to express your artistic talents, whether it's through the magic of poetry, the strokes of a paintbrush, the molding of pottery or any other form of creation that stirs your soul. Come along and share your creations with a like-minded community, whether you're a seasoned artist or someone just starting on their artistic journey.
These events will run on the second Tuesday of each month and there will of course be an opportunity for lots of chat, MCAS or otherwise while we get crafty! You can read more and book your place here.
