Explore Colour, Pattern and Creative Recycling with Textile Art will be held on consecutive Thursdays from May 20 (initially from 7.30 – 9pm, then 7.30 – 8.30pm for weeks two-four).

Artist Jessica Grady will take participants through a selection of her techniques to create pieces, playing with recycled materials, textiles, embroidery and mark-making skills.

“The course is suitable for anyone who wants to get creative and try something new with no previous experience needed,” a spokesman for the NCCD said.

The cost of the course is £45, which includes £12 worth of materials.

For international purchases, the cost is £65 (or £45 if materials are not required).

It is open to those aged 12-plus, however those under 18 must have an adult with them.
