Look what's coming up at the Ardagh! As part of our Repair Cafe work, ACT will be running this great new course in response to demand from local residents. If you'd like to learn to sew, become more confident making clothes, furnishings and accessories using a sewing machine, or pick up and polish long forgotten skills - this could be for you!

If there is enough demand this will run twice daily on a Wednesday for 7 weeks - morning & evening (10am - 1pm or 6pm - 9pm). There are a small number of 100% bursaried places for residents who meet specific eligibility criteria - get in touch if you'd like to come along! ALL WELCOME!
