Explore your creativity with the latest evening courses at Burnley College

There’s a chance to explore your creativity and make some great family keepsakes in a series of new evening courses for Adult Learners at Burnley College.

From discovering how to upcycle and create a personalised photo frame, producing a unique portrait on fabric or finding a fun craft that can be enjoyed by all the family, there’s a course for you, starting soon at Burnley College.

Courses are:

  • Photoshop for Beginners – a basic introduction to the tools you will use to manipulate your own photographs, using layers, double exposure, merging images, clipping and editing
  • Creating Keepsake Portraits in Fabric – using your own treasured photograph to create a portrait on fabric using stitching techniques or a sewing machine
  • Creating Easter Crafts – make seasonal bunting or a unique Easter wreath to decorate your home
  • Upcycle to Create Unique Photo Frames – discover how you can create an individual artwork using items you have in the attic or the back of a cupboard at home
  • Family Crafts and Fun – discover fun and easy craft activities that all the family can enjoy together.

The short courses, which start at 6pm and 6.30pm, are held in the college’s £100 million, town centre Campus in its high-tech studios which boast the very latest technology and equipment to help make your ideas come to life.

Simon Jordan, Deputy Principal of Burnley College, said:

“There are many reasons why you would choose to study a hobby course with us here at Burnley College. It’s a great way to relax and take your mind off everyday concerns; it’s the perfect place to make new friends and meet others who share your love of crafts; it’s the ideal way to learn the skills you need to create beautiful, individual gifts and decorations and, of course, learning new things helps to keep your mind active and your fingers agile!

“Our Tutors are looking forward to sharing their passion for fabrics and upcycling with Adult Learners and passing on the top tips and ideas they’ve gathered over their careers. The atmosphere will be very relaxed and friendly: everyone is welcome to come along and have a go.”

Courses start in March and April, with small class sizes meaning that places are being snapped up quickly. To find out more and secure your place, visit: www.burnley.ac.uk/adult-courses-available
