Tasty Textiles Sessions at Stainforth
Doncaster College is running craft taster sessions at
its Stainforth site, the recently renamed Doncaster College
The sessions are in dressmaking, vintage wardrobe makeover,
‘stitch and bitch’ and craft textile techniques and run between 10
am and 12 noon and 1pm and 3pm on Monday and Wednesday for the next
Ex-cluding half term which is the week beginning 29th Oct.
Each session can be either be an introduction for complete
beginners or for those having some basic knowledge then new skills
can be developed.
Well-known local textile artist Susan Forbes will run the
sessions and Susan will inspire and encourage potential ‘creatives’
to be imaginative and inventive. Her own work inspires and it
reflects her love of traditional crafts used in a contempory way
and ranges from fine fibre paper to heavy hand rolled felt; from
hand dipped plaster garments to sun-print stitched hangings; from
felted elfin-like baby bootees to customized costumes.
Potential students will be encouraged to bring their own
materials and they can be purchased as the sessions progress so
costs will vary depending on finished work.
Hot drinks are provided, but people can bring their own lunch if
they want to stay all day also parking and disabled access is
