Ten women have successfully completed a creative craft programme organised by Surestart, LEDCOM and Northern Regional College.
This is the first course under the Learner Access and Engagement Programme (LAE).
The women enjoyed the accredited 15-week creative craft which involved basic mixed craft skills.
A variety of beautiful work was created by the participants including personalised cushions, bags , a jewellery box, children’s bunting and other bespoke designs and creations.
Ashley Stewart one of the course participants commented: “ I really enjoyed the course and surprised myself on what I could achieve, I definitely plan to do another course”.
