New year, new skill

We all make resolutions for the beginning of the New Year. Some are doing Dry-January, some are doing Veganuary and many are doing the traditional ‘eat less’, and ‘drink less’. But resolutions are so hard to keep when they are a) down to your own will power and b) often about doing less of something you enjoy! 

 

So instead this year we’re going to vow to do more of the interesting things and actually book them in – meaning we can’t keep putting things off! Here are some of our top recommendations of new skills and experiences that could make 2016 your best yet!

Primary Schools across the country are now teaching basic coding to 7 year olds so this is an easy course to help you keep up with the new generation. You’ll learn how websites are made, and make your own beautiful single-page website with HTML and CSS

Saturday Sewing Sessions

Anyone else got swept up in the Great British Sewing Bee earlier in the year? No? Well for those of us that did here is a choice of accessible courses that can cover the absolute basics, to alterations, to pattern cutting and ‘clone your favourite garment’. They also host events for babyshowers and hen parties. The founder was even featured on Channel 4's 'This Old Thing: Vintage Clothes Show'.
