2.5 hours Class size 1 to 8     label £20

We are preparing the space, and it boasts some impressive features, including its location in the communal garden and a wealth of amazing resources. Our focus will be textiles and sustainable practices, repair, and revive. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the generous sponsorship and donations from Mace, Structure Tone, Specialist Lighting, Arena Electrical, Sale Mechanical, and Winters Electrical, helping us bring this vision to life. Their support has been instrumental in fitting out the space with all the necessary equipment and materials to make it a welcoming and inspiring environment for our community. A big thank you to Richard Walker, our Chair, without whom this project would not have been possible. Also, thanks to Singer who has donated 2 sewing machines.
To celebrate the start of our new adventure, we are offering some exciting taster classes at a special price of just £20 per workshop.
We are inviting you to join us and help us inaugurate the space while providing valuable feedback. Feel free to book as many as you like, bring along friends, and capacity for 8 makers. All welcome. The official opening of the space is on 6th July and a crowdfunding appeal to launch a full programme of activities in the year ahead.
Our regular tutors will be teaching these classes, and they are experts in their field.
