Here at Williby Roc’s we aim to release everyone’s potential for creation and resourcefulness using reclaimed waste and natural materials from the world around us.

We are passionate about arts and crafts and we also care about our environment and the world we live in. This seemed like a perfect opportunity to create Williby Roc’s and start empowering children and adults to be more confident and sustainable within their communities while releasing their potential to become independent learners and crafters.

Our sessions have a friendly and relaxed feel and people are encouraged and supported to craft freely and follow their own creative interests. We celebrate the seasons and our sessions and materials reflect the seasonal bounty of nature.
