Learn a new craft at the Urbis July 14, 2009

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.
