A tasty charity shop in Nantwich has launched a new art drawing class for adults.

Swirly Whirlys crêperie and ice cream parlour, on Pillory Street, is offering residents a chance to brush up on their artwork at the weekly sessions.

The St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice outlet opened its doors in November and has established itself as a hit in the local community.

The new classes are being held every Wednesday from 11am to 1pm, and will be led by a qualified art teacher.

Cost is £10 per person, which includes a crêpe and a drink, with all the proceeds going to the local hospice.

Steven Holmes, St Luke’s retail and operations manager, said: “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.

Swirly Whirlys is also soon to open its Butterfly Garden at the rear of the shop, for the spring and summer season.
