A workshop or course can be a great place to try something new, learn more complex skills, get inspired, and meet other crafty friends. If you want to try a craft which requires lots of specialist equipment, like pottery, woodwork or metalwork, a workshop, class or course is your only real option. Keep an eye out for workshops near you at:
- craft or sewing shops, eg the Ministry of Craft in Manchester, The Makery in Bath, Abakhan in North Wales/Liverpool, The Beaderie in Cambridge
- arts centres, eg Millennium Court Arts Centre in Portadown, mac birmingham in Birmingham, or Dundee Contemporary Arts
- studios of local craftspeople or entrepreneurs, eg Made to Sew in Somerset or Stitch Club in London, 318 Ceramics in Farnham
Costs vary so check beforehand! If you’re very keen, you could ask for a course voucher for a birthday or Christmas present.
