Craft & Textiles course

Inter­est­ed in craft­ing? Exper­i­ment and play with a range of tex­tile tech­niques. Online course for 11 – 16 year olds.

About the course
11-16 and interested in Craft and Textiles? Do you have a Craft or Textiles project that you are working on, maybe you are learning to sew, a keen knitter or love upcycling clothes? Learn how to design and get creative with recycled materials around your home. Get professional advice, tips and ideas about how to explore your craft further and make your own piece of textile artwork.

We will be working through the Bronze Arts Award, a great Level 1 qualification which everyone will achieve by the end of the course. At the end of term we will have an online showcase of the artwork you have produced alongside the work from the two other Creative Courses.

How does it work?
Every Wednesday the group will log on to Zoom (a video call service) so we can go through a 'how to' guide of the next steps and also see what everyone has done over the last few days. Then on Thursday afternoon or Friday morning we will arrange a time to have an individual catch up with you so if you need specific help or have any questions about what to do we can go over it 1:1 with you.

As this is an online course we will give you as much support as we can over Zoom but it's important that you are happy and able to do some of the work on your own at home. You will need to be able to access Zoom via a computer/tablet/mobile phone, we will help you get set up with this before the course starts.

WHEN: 29th April - 8th July
Group session - 4-4.30pm every Wednesday
Individual catch up - prearranged slot on Thursday afternoons or Friday mornings

This course is for 11-16 year olds in the Bristol area.
