The Sewing Place

« on: February 13, 2022, 14:27:28 PM »
Has anyone used this site to discover a craft course that they've actually partipated in?

Their website states:
"CraftCourses connects people with thousands of artisan makers across the UK. We have a massive choice of in-person workshops, live online classes, online courses, kits, and our brand new handcrafted shop."

They do seem to have a great choice of wormholes down which I could easily disappear

I had a quick look yesterday evening.  There seems to be a lot of needle felting - which I haven't tried and also several darkside courses. 

In the past I did a couple of years of jewellery making (silver/gold) but that does require quite a lot of specialist tools and equipment, and I've had a go at most of the art techniques; watercolours, pastels ...

Currently I am interested in combining art and textile techniques.

Ironically I was looking for some kind of online course to do so will have a wing over there and a lookie.
I really need to neaten up my sewing and have been doing embroidery in a hope of doing that, but then my embroidery doesn't look that neat either  :laughing:
As it neared the top of the grade, it went more slowly. However, it still kept saying, "I—think—I—can, I—think—I—can." It reached the top by drawing on bravery and then went on down the grade, congratulating itself by saying, "I thought I could,  I thought I could."

Triumph of hope over experience :D

I fancy one of the stone carving kits - if the end result doesn't turn out as rubble  :laughing:  DH could incorporate it into the low wall/ seat he's going to build in the garden this summer.
