A CRAFT class at a West Shields community centre is opening its doors to new members.
The Samba Art Group is based at All Saints CA in Stanley Street, South Shields, and offers people the chance to unleash their creative side.
The group was set up more than four years ago by Ann Elliott and has more than 12 members who regularly attend each week.
Now, Ann is opening the doors to encourage more people to get involved, learn new skills and make new friends.
She said: “There is a great atmosphere within the group and we all help each other out.
“It’s not just about the art and making things, but also about making new friends.
“We have 25 people on our books and of those we have 12 people who attend on a regular basis, with others taking part as and when they can.
“There is a wide range of arts and crafts people can get involved in.
“We would love to see more new faces coming along.”
Craft sessions are held on Tuesdays 1pm-3pm, Wednesdays and Fridays 10am-noon.
