Enterprise classes allow us to design, make and package things to sell at craft sales.

In the sewing sessions members are able to create a range of different pieces such as bags and cushions. We use lots of fabrics and master a range of stitches, both by hand and machine, to complete our projects.

In our pottery sessions we develop basic skills over a number of weeks, later introducing more complex challenge such as decorations, ornaments, coasters, pots and platters.

In these sessions we also learn about the design process, increasing understanding of our packaging, costing and marketing.

Learning Outcomes

  • To be able to make a quality saleable product
  • To be able to follow instructions
