As part of their Adult Learning Programme, the Urbis in Manchester holds different introductory craft lessons every fortnight. So, if you’ve wanted to dabble in a few different mediums, but don’t want to spend loads of time and money only to discover you don’t really like crocheting, then this is a great way to learn for £2.50.
This Sunday the Handmade Social craft is sewing and embroidery for beginners and basic knowledge sewers. The end product of this lesson is a felt brooch.
So far, I have been to three of the sessions and learned how to crochet a granny square, learned to screen print and made a bamboo lantern. I still have a long way to go with crocheting, but it’s good to have someone show you the basics and it’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
