Like speed dating - move between the different skills to conjure up creations in a set period of time - at the Queen’s Theatre.

A SPEED crafting event in Barnstaple will be offering the chance to conjure up beautiful creations while raising money for the North Devon Theatres Trust.

Tickets are now on sale for the evening event which follows a similar format to speed dating, with participants moving between different disciplines during the night.

Those taking part will choose three different crafting workshops, and spend 45 minutes learning each skill before moving onto the next.

From chiffon corsages, origami and jewellery making to iris folding, fabric message boards and recycled paper roses, there is plenty to choose from.

“People are very interested in crafting at the moment, especially with the likes of Kirstie Allsopp,” said organiser Sue Ruddle, of the Friends of North Devon Theatres.

“We thought it would be a nice idea to do something completely different, learn new skills in a short time, and have something to take home at the end of it.”

The evening will be held at the Queen’s Theatre in the Gallery Cafe on October 10 at 6.45pm for a 7pm start. Tickets cost £10 and all proceeds go towards the Theatres.

“We are raising money at the moment to refurbish the Gallery Café and we have just donated booster seats for the children’s shows,” added Sue.

To buy tickets or for more information call the Box Office on 01271 324242 or visit www.northdevontheatres.org.uk.
