Creative Treats at Sweet Meet celebrated Christmas at Sahahra on 11th December.

Artcore and Sahahra orgnaised a Christmas Celebration event as part of Creative Treats @ Sweet Meet at Rosehill Lodge, Arboretum Park.

Everyone enjoyed a variety of food, met new people and had the opportunity to get a glimpse of Sweet Meet. There was also an opportunity to draw your own design onto ceramic plates, bowls and cups which could then be taken home as a Christmas gift.

The event was a great success, we would like to thank everyone who attended and also thanks to funders and supporters.
