Take time out for yourself and try something new

Our Homecraft courses are a brilliant way to fit something just for you into your calendar each week. Enjoy our relaxed, welcoming, and friendly environment as you fit something into your calendar each week that's just for you.

Embrace your hobbies and get creative

From Sewing and Knitting to Silver Jewellery and introductions to origami, there is plenty to get involved in. Take a look at our full course list to see what could inspire you next.

We offer Homecraft classes across Oxfordshire and pride ourselves in teaching in small, supportive environments. Throughout your time with us you will learn from our professional and passionate tutors who are keen to share their skills and help you get the most out of your craft. In our classroom environments you can practice with the tools and machines you need; a great way to affordably try out a new craft before buying your own kit.

Relaxed and friendly weekly courses

Once you’ve enrolled on one of our Homecraft courses, you will join fellow crafters who share your passion in our small and friendly classroom environments. Our priority is to help you find confidence in your new skills and show you all that is possible with them.

From designing and planning your own jewellery and garments, to learning about the specialist tools and equipment needed; our courses will begin by giving you the tools and knowledge you need to have fun and get creative and imaginative with your craft.

Once you’ve mastered the skills needed, you’ll work on your own projects to create pieces you love, all whilst being supported and guided by our professional tutors.
