Training Courses

Women in Berwickshire have the opportunity through our FREE TRAINING PROGRAMMES, to learn skills in craft, design and technology. Each student learns how to use a sewing machine and create a range of furnishings, fashions and crafts. In addition, we support our students to identify their creative skills, aspirations and future opportunities. 

The products made are sold to raise money to sustain the project and for promoting wider community good.

Our main 12-week training programme takes place at our workshop in Eyemouth. For women who can’t get to Eyemouth we offer a shorter 6-week Community Course in village halls and community centres throughout Berwickshire. 

If you are interested in learning more about our training courses, please contact us to find out more.

We encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to discover the creative potential of heritage crafts and thrift skills.  We run a range of craft courses and sewing workshops throughout the year. These include, sewing machine basics, patchwork, applique, wool crafts, rag rugging and others. Check our weekend workshops to book a place.
