Textiles cover a range of activities including; Weaving, needle craft, knitting and individual creative design projects.
Textile work enables you to nurture your creative mind as you plan and develop a design prior to the making-process. You will then have the opportunity to consider the progression of your idea and select from the wide range of materials donated by the local community to bring your ideas to life. Your technical skills will begin to develop as you create your textile pieces.
