Connection Cafe: Macrame Hanging Baskets

Get involved in a variety of creative and relaxing activities at our weekly event on Colchester campus, open to all Essex students to attend.

Join us in the Art Exchange every Wednesday across the Autumn term to meet others, take a lunch break, and try out some different activities.

Residence Life are launching a weekly Connection Cafe in the Art Exchange!

Come along to our weekly Connection Cafe, here every Wednesday from 12-3pm during term time. Here, you can get involved in a range of things on offer, and the activities change weekly!

This week, have a go at:

  • macrame hanging baskets to keep a plant in
  • Halloween themed arts and crafts
  • making door tags to display on your accommodation door
  • watercolour painting
  • and much more! 

The Art Exchange is a great place to spend a lunch break, bring your friends, or meet someone new. Some of our Residents' Assistants will also be around to chat with if you needed any information or advice. 

Sessions take place in the Art Exchange and are FREE of charge. All materials supplied so just turn up to have a go any time whilst we're open.
