THE weekly online Craft Cafe at The Brunton in Musselburgh is back after support was received from the local area partnership.

The cafe gives people the chance to meet others interested in crafts and work with a professional artist via Zoom.

A spokesperson for the Brunton Theatre Trust said: “It’s important that we keep connected and crafting can have huge benefits on your mental health.

“It’s a great stress reliever and creative way of keeping your brain focused on something that will give you a sense of achievement.”

The online workshops will show people how to make a rag rug using any old clothes or fabric from home. Everyone is welcome.

The cafe meets for three weeks, starting on Monday, October 4.

Participants will be sent a small pack of materials to help create their rag rugs.

To join costs £10 plus an additional £1.50 booking fee.

Book via the website or call 0131 653 5245.

Booking closes next Monday (September 27).

Musselburgh Area Partnership allocates a budget, awarded by East Lothian Council, for local projects.
