Craft Workshops

Rag rug tea cosy made at The Goodlife Centre in Waterloo

Fancy something a little less DIY-based? We also offer a selection of traditional workshops run by professional craftsmen and women, who are a joy to learn with.

Fancy your hand at Rag Rug Making with Mary McGeown or Basket Making with Claire Murphy? Both these brand new workshops have just been added, so join up and learn a new craft that could become a hobby for life.

Or perhaps you have longed to learn the traditional craft of Lampshade Making with City & Guilds trained Ian McQueen, or let master seamstress Grace Pennycooke will teach you how to Make Curtains that you would be proud to hang at home.

In Pom Pom tassels you will make a a luschiously opulant multi pom pommed tassel, using pure wool and silk with Passementerie expert and author, Anna Crutchley.

Join us at one of our workshops and learn a new skill. Bring a friend or come alone and make new friends at The Goodlife Centre.

All personal protection, tools and materials are included. More details of individual workshops can be found on each choice below.
