Craft Courses for Beginners

Ready to begin something new?

Due to high demand we’re in the process of developing a new suite of short online craft courses for beginners. These are aimed at complete beginners and will form part of our Skill Stage 1 offering. So, if you’re just starting out you’ll find that these courses are a great way of building confidence and getting to grips with the basics. 

They will also serve as an excellent ‘taster’ for our more advanced City & Guilds Accredited Courses. If you’re just at the beginning of your creative textile journey, you can use these courses to quickly and easily see if you would like to expand your skills to the next level.
