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 Community Services Officer at community@abingdon.gov.uk to give us the details that should be on there.
