Arts and crafts

South Gloucestershire has a wealth of amateur and voluntary groups involved in all kinds of art and crafts for children and young people. 

Where to find local arts and crafts groups 

If your child is interested in joining a local group, visit your local library who can signpost you to those in the local area.

See our local directory of organisations offering arts and crafts activities, including organisations for children and young people with disabilities.  We are currently developing our directory so that you will be able to search for things to do.  If you know of any organisations who run sessions, activities or places to go please ask them to create an account and sign up their organisation. 

Many youth clubs and organisations offer children and young people the opportunity to get involved in arts and crafts.   See our webpage for more information on youth clubs. 

For clubs and groups for children with special educational needs and/or a disability (SEND) see our pages for the SEND Local offer and the link to our directory of services
