– Sewing Machines for Beginners
Running With Scissors aims:
- To provide a quality and contemporary environment to learn craft skills
- To provide the space and the time to experiment and be creative
- To reuse and recycle materials wherever possible
- To encourage people of all ages to craft
- To have fun
Most of our workshops are product-based so you will be able to take your finished product home to show off your new found skills to your family and friends. Some of our other workshops will show you craft techniques or let you try out equipment so that you can expand and develop a craft technique in your own way.
Here at Running With Scissors we call our workshops “workshops” because it seems more friendly (and less scary) than lessons, courses, classes, programs, modules and especially curriculums (after all we’re not still at school!). We’re more about workshops which are fun, funky, contemporary, modern, exciting and relaxing.
Running With Scissors is about opening the doors to your creativity and having a go at making something with your own hands with like-minded people.
We aim to create a relaxed and encouraging place to try out lots of craft skills with professional tutors. Experimenting is encouraged!
