Meet Me at the Maltings is a friendly, creative group which connects local people from all backgrounds and experience. Initially set up in response to a nationwide ‘loneliness epidemic’, this has become a pleasant, self organising and dynamic group of people who look out for each other and welcome newcomers.
Each time we meet, we enjoy a two hour creative writing or crafting session, led by experienced and encouraging artists.
Stop press! We are delighted to have recently received funding from the Johnson Wax Charitable Trust to enable us to continue with our weekly Meet Me at the Maltings sessions. An enormous thank you to the Trust from everyone at Meet Me at the Maltings!

06, 13, 20 & 27 Oct As part of Farnham Craft Month – we will be embarking upon a social crafting project called ‘Come Quilt With Me!’ to make our own Meet Me at the Maltings’ English Paper Pieced Quilt with Alice Butcher of Alice & Ginny. We have loads of fabric to chose from, but please do also bring your own cotton fabric pieces to bring your own personal contribution to this piece which will stay as part of the Meet Me at the Maltings furnishings. Over four consecutive Thursday sessions you are welcome to come to our foyer and learn the skills needed to then make your own quilt or cushion covers at home.
