Make, Learn, Laugh, Give
The Olive Pesto Craft Meet Up Group is a community activity of the Brunswick UC Arts Group. We welcome crafters new and old, experienced and beginners, skilled and learners.

Check out the July newsletter here.

We meet every month usually on the first Saturday of the month in the Youth Hall, 2 Merri St. at the rear of the church.

Please bring whatever you are working on to show and discuss, whether knitting, crochet or anything.  We all like to “ooh” and “aah” at others’ work and ask / give advice.  Also bring along your willingness to try something new with our guest crafters. Or at least to watch others trying!

All are welcome, whether inexperienced or expert.  Smaller children will need your supervision, otherwise suitable for all aged 8 to 108!

This year we have enjoyed learning to make Zip Jewellery, Brunswick Boomerang Bags, Red Beanies for Love Makes a Way, crocheted stars, Christmas baubles, and fabric Christmas Trees.  We also joined in the second annual World Wide Knit in Public Day.
