Students use sewing, needlepoint, rug-making, cross stitching and many other material crafts to develop their creative skills.

They are encouraged to bring their own ideas to this session, working with the instructor to develop their design in a medium in which they can comfortably work. Students can progress at their own pace as they develop their abilities.

Long-term projects may take up to a year to finish but the sense of achievement is immense when the work is complete, especially if the finished article is offered for sale.

Craft is my favourite session. I enjoy it because it is relaxing and quiet.
