The Re-Tweed training programme enables women to develop their creative skills in craft, design and technology with textiles.
The next 12-week course run by the Eyemouth-based social enterprise will begin in August and there are still a few places available.
Running over one and a half days each week, the course gives students a chance to produce a range of furnishings, fashions and crafts that are then sold to support the Re-Tweed social mission.
The course is free and offers practical skills, helps build confidence and helps students find their next step on the road into further learning, enterprise, employment or in some cases, volunteering – particularly in creative industry.
Each student will receive a minimum of 6.5 hours direct training each week and an additional opportunity to ‘freestyle’ on their own.
Trainer Juliet Porter has a professional background in teaching and in textiles and is supported by volunteers Jill Harrison and Rhonda Noble to deliver the 12-week programme.
This course will run every Tuesday from 10.30am-4.30pm. Lunch will be provided for the first week and refreshments provided throughout the course. It will take place in the Re-Tweed premises at 26 High Street, Eyemouth .
