Crafts & Hobbies

Abingdon-on-Thames has a strong tradition of craftworking and hosts an annual craft fair that inspires many people to take up a new craft themselves. Joining one of our many clubs is a good way of receiving help and advice about a hobby or craft you are interested in.

If your club or society is not listed below and you think it ought to be please contact the Town Council at enquiries@abingdon.gov.uk to give us the details that should be on there.
