How will I be taught?
Craft courses provide an opportunity for you to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques.
Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.
What do I need to bring with me?
A fully functioning electric sewing machine with pedal, power cable and embroidery/darning foot. You must be able to drop the feed dogs or have a cover for them. The machine manual will be essential. For the first class you will need light to medium weight fabric scraps such as craft cotton or calico, a piece of canvas (tutor will have some pieces available for purchase), a machine embroidery hoop if you have one, plus machine threads and bobbins to fit your machine.
A basic sewing kit will also be required. This should include fine pins, needles, threads, sharp dressmaking scissors, small sharp embroidery scissors, tape measure, non-permanent fabric markers. A small amount of Bondaweb/Heat’nBond would be useful.
A note book and pen will be needed for most sessions.
What can I do next?

What do I need to join the course

It is important to note that craft courses are practical and require a degree of manual dexterity. If you need to bring a carer or another adult with you please contact the Curriculum Leader.
