I just wanted to send you a message to say a huge thank you for the amazing course this week. As a teacher myself, I know how hard it can be to communicate skills to learners clearly. And you did! I have not stopped sewing since the course ended and cannot wait to come back in September for my next classes (x2!)Everything from the delicious cakes, the uber cool workspace, the way you served up coffee just when I was flagging, and most of all, the warmth and welcome I felt being there. So here's to your really fabulous crafting club and its much deserved success. See you in the autumn! Bring it on!
A CREATIVE AND SOCIAL HUB IN BATTERSEA, SW LONDON, FOR EVERYONE ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT CRAFTS, HANDMADE AND DIY.
The Old School Club is a social hub, open to everyone interested in learning and making something creative, from sewing, painting furniture and upcycling to business seminars for entrepreneurs. We
have a wide range of classes and workshops, for all tastes, ages and skills. for adults and children.
One of the benefits of the club is the space. Despite its location in the Battersea Business Centre, which looks a bit like an industrial estate!, the club is full of warmth and creative energy, with pre-loved furniture and lots of natural light. There is a shared workspace (we call it Cocrafting), for those who need a space to work, to develop creative projects and to share their experiences with like minded people. Being a mum myself, I wanted to provide support to other mums, whether they are freelancers, bloggers, working part time or just thinking about setting up a new idea. See our Cocrafting space information here
We have also set up a crèche, an area for children to play, to be looked after or to be part of our educational activities, whilst the mums can concentrate on their work or attend the classes.
