Beginners Courses

If your New Years resolution is to learn a new skill or to develop an existing one, we are able to help. We offer a wide range of courses in our purpose built classroom which is well equipped with everything you might need. All our classes have a maximum of 6 participants (5 for sewing machine classes) which means there is plenty of 1 to 1 help available. The £30 fee for beginner classes includes all materials as well as light refreshments. Crafting always goes better with cake! All workshops can be booked online using the links below or by giving us a call on 0121 314 6888.

  1. I wouldlove tolearn to crochet but cannot make week days as i work all week, if you have any evening or weekend classes could you please let me know thankyou.

  2. If ever you do a course following on from the beginner’s sewing machine set up class, could you please let me know? I did this course with you in December 2013 and now am interested in learning to make and sew basic items, such as cushion covers, etc., but not really into the embroidery part. I went to one class in Earlswood but found it a bit chaotic and cramped.
