Course Information

What will I be learning?

On this course we will try a range of different crafts from fabric crayoning and painting to simple embroidery and applique, beginners crochet or something that you want to explore which we can incorporate into the sessions.

These sessions are about being creative, making new friends and being inspired to do more than you thought you could, so come along and have some ‘you time’ and creativity, it can do you the world of good.

How will I know how I am progressing during the course?

Feedback will be given, both verbally and by the evaluation of completed tasks & projects.  You will receive verbal feedback on the results of your practical exercises.

There is no formal exam, although there is continual evaluation throughout the course.

Towards the end of each session you will use a DerbyLearn forum to record what you have done in class and comment on how you think you got on.  Before the next session your tutor will reply with their feedback.  This is a very good method of recording your own progress, reflecting on the session and a great way to receive motivation from your tutor.
