Chance to get crafty at taster

CRAFT taster sessions are available at Doncaster College’s Stainforth site, the recently renamed Doncaster College East,

The sessions, for beginners or those with basic knowledge, are in dressmaking, vintage wardrobe makeover, ‘stitch and bitch’ and craft textile techniques, and run between 10am-noon and also 1-3pm on Mondays and Wednesdays for the next three weeks (excluding half term which starts on October 29).

Textile artist Susan Forbes will run the sessions, her own work 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.

Potential students will be encouraged to take along their own materials.
