Do any colleges teach crafts?

I'd be interested in things like making jewellery, soap, beauty products, and so on?

Check out their adult education / part time programme but government funding has been cut back progressively with more focus on work skills and literacy/numeracy so if you find any they may be relatively dear. Many that were previously adult ed tutors have taken their classes privately now, to avoid bureaucracy and increased costs to students.

Cheers thanks. It's hard getting information.

Try hotcourses.co.uk many colleges put their adult education on there. There is also West Dean (?) near Chichester which does short residential courses.

Thanks, that wouldn't be suitable but it's good to know some places do them

My local college doesn't seem to offer crafts as such, but lots of cookery courses from beginners to advanced.

Is it on during the day or at night?

Local crafters often offer these sorts of classes at community centres and the like. Do you have a craft shop? They might have adverts up.
