New courses are being run in Keighley by the Workers’ Educational Association.
Hand embroidery starts today at the Temple Row Centre, from 1pm to 3pm.
There will be ten sessions, at which people can try their hand at gold and stumpwork and create a panel for mounting in a card or for framing.
Skills learned will include metal thread couching, back and filling stitches, padding and bead/sequin application.
The course costs £63 or is free for people on some benefits. For further information, contact Catherine Barker on (01535) 274984, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit wea.org.uk/yh.
To discuss in advance what materials will be needed, contact tutor Chris Beal on (01535) 603465.
On Wednesday, Movement and Migration begins at the Friends Meeting House, Strawberry Street, at 10.15am.
The seven-session course will help people who are curious about how and when their ancestors moved locally, or further afield. The tutor for this course will be Jackie Depelle.
There is a £44 fee, but the cost is waived for some benefits recipients.
