creating and learning together, sharing expertise and ideas


Create & Share, which is held in Great Shelford Free Church hall (accessed by the Ashen Green entrance of the church), attracts people of all ages and abilities – some even just come for a chat and making new friends.

There are two sessions:
People are welcome to come for the morning, the afternoon or the whole day. If you come for the whole day, why not bring a picnic lunch and we will provide drinks (for which donations would be welcome).

  • 09.30 to 12 noon
  • 13.00-15.30 pm

Next Session:
Thursday 9th March 2018

                              Lino Printing

Following last Autumn’s very successful and popular lino-printing workshops, Richard Renouf has kindly offered to lead a third workshop on Thursday March 8th from 09.30-15.30.
This time the theme will be Spring, but if you have your own design in mind, feel free to experiment.

The maximum number of places is 15 so please contact Janet to book your place. As usual we are grateful for donations in the region of £5 to cover materials used on the day.

For more information please contact:

Richard Renouf or Janet Jefferson.

Making Quilts for Refugees & the Homeless
12th April 2018

At the February meeting, we were delighted to receive 5 beautiful completed quilts kindly donated by a friend of a friend and the room was a hive of industry. We will be continuing with this project in our April 12th meeting so come along with your unfinished quilts, fabric and sewing machine.

The quilts will be made up from 12 X 12″ squares. You can help by providing fabric:- old shirts, dresses and sheets can be used but they must be 100% cotton. The squares can be made in any patchwork design, strips stitched together or in just one fabric.

Even if you’re unable to come on the day you could make squares at home for our team of sewers to stitch together. Help is needed in preparing the fabric i.e. ironing, cutting.

For more information please contact Janet Jefferson.

Or telephone the church office (01223 842181) and leave your contact details with the Church Administrator.


The aim of Create and Share is to encourage everyone no matter what level one feels they are creatively.

We all have a creative instinct inside us, but some feel more confident than others to ‘create’!

We celebrate each other’s achievements and encourage one another in all that we do as well as spending time chatting and enjoying each other’s company.

Please feel to bring friends, but let Janet Jefferson know whether you wish to come for the morning, afternoon or the full day so that she has an idea of numbers for refreshments and resources. Bring a picnic lunch. Tea and coffee is available all day.

For further information, contact Janet Jefferson (Tel: 01223 513471 or email )
