Come and learn or relearn the old crafts and not just knitting and weaving. Come and learn with me how to use a knitting machine, a sock making machine, how to sew, how to use an overlocker. My grandmother taught me tatting, cross stitch and embroidery, and I watched her make lace. My mother taught me sewing and she learnt spinning and weaving. A friend has given me the loom my dad made for my mum. Mum also learnt macramé. We learnt cane basket weaving at school. Have a go at leather work, embellishing your clothes or accessories with patches, fabric paints, or bead work.

Advance your craft skill with special tutors, online courses, and access to a vast library of books and DVD’s.

Those at High School – is this an opportunity for NCEA credits or Gateway work experience? Could this be a step towards tertiary education at NMIT or University? There will also be opportunities to display your work at local and national exhibitions and competitions.

Could this be a fun and friendly way to create for yourself, your family, your friends or for income?
