Do you want to make connections and share ideas? This day is made for you. You will be able to choose from a dizzying variety of workshops and sessions, presentations and talks. There will be space to discuss a pressing local issue and the degree to which Transition can offer a response. Rob will be speaking.

The meetings of the group called Exploring the Heart of Transition take place on the first Sunday of the month at the Quaker Meeting House at 7pm and finish at 9pm.

There is no leader and no agenda but we support each other in attempting to delve safely and deeply into the nature of the mind to see if a transition is possible.

Every week - Sewing/crotcheting/ knitting cafe

Now upstairs at Hester's Haberdashery in Gage St.

Drop in anytime between 2-5 pm - every monday afternoon - FREE !

The TCL sewing cafe is growing and changing; new people coming all the time yet we have a comfortable number of very friendly makers every Monday, 2-5pm. This is all about RESKILLING - about learning skills from one another that help build a more resilient - less 'throwaway' Lancaster. The projects range from embroidery, crochet, rug making, and tailoring right through to experimenting with fleecing and using shrunken clothes to make slippers and hotwater bottle covers. We are an inventive lot. Now many of us are knitting clothes for a charity. Come along and find out what you would like to do. We have all the basic equipment you would need, you just need to bring your own materials. Hot drinks are available.

ACCESS etc - being a voluntary organisation and relying on donations for room hire for meetings - some groups choose to meet in pubs which are free but which may not have good mobility access. If you would like to come along to a group meeting that is listed as being upstairs please just let the group contact person know and we will make changes! We are now actively checking out venues that are more accessible - please contact to send us ideas!
