According to BBC’s Newsbeat “Young people want to learn “old fashioned” skills like knitting and wooden toy making.”
Here at Nottingham WEA Community office we can not help (yet) with wooden toy making but we can help with knitting and crochet. We have a brand new course starting called Knitting and Crochet ~ Building on the Basics.
This course is aimed at improvers with both techniques. It will build upon the basics, working with more colour techniques, introducing different stitches and using them to create pattern and texture. There will be a section on finishing and how to sew items together. The course will also look at reading patterns and charts.
If you have dabbled and want to brush off your skills or indeed want to pick up a new one then this may well be the course for you.
Make space in your diary for Wednesday mornings 10am to 1pm. There is plenty of parking at the new venue: WEA Training Room, Hungerhill Rd, Mapperley, Nottingham NG3 4NB
The course is starting today but you are still able to join on the 29th April. Don’t delay call Caroline today on 0115 985 8203 to talk about this course and reserve your place.
