St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice’s Swirly Whirlys crêperie, ice cream parlour and old fashioned sweet shop in Nantwich is inviting creative Cheshire residents to brush up on their art skills and make new friends at the same time.
The innnovative Swirly Whirlys shop, based at 6 Pillory Street, officially opened its doors in November and has quickly established itself as a popular and tasty hit with the local community.
And now the unique store, which is certainly a tasty treat for eyes both young and old, has launched new weekly art drawing classes for adults, held every Wednesdays from 11am-1pm.
The classes are led by a qualified art teacher and cost £10 per person, which includes a crêpe and a drink. And of course all the proceeds from the classes go to the local hospice.
St Luke’s Retail and Operations Manager Steven Holmes commented: “We’re delighted to have our art classes up and running in our fantastic studio.
“To begin with, the classes will focus on still-life pencil drawing however we would love to extend this to include water colours and more in time.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity to improve your skills, or even learn a brand new one, in great company.
“You can also treat yourself to a mouth-watering array of freshly cooked crêpes.
“Swirly Whirlys is a feast for the eyes and imagination so what better place to be creative.”
Classes are limited to eight people a session so booking is essential.
Over £6500 a day is needed for St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice to open its doors every day, and the majority of that money is found through fundraising and donations.
Aimed at children, their parents and grandparents, the historic three-story Swirly Whirlys encompasses a luxurious traditional sweet shop where children can indulge in a treat to eat, while parents can relax and also enjoy wonderful food. There is a fabulous craft studio incorporating a party area, plus throughout the store you’ll find plenty of wonderful gift ideas.
Swirly Whirlys staff and volunteers are also excited about the soon to open Butterfly Garden at the rear of the shop, the perfect place to spend time on a spring day.
