Staff and parents of Clevedon School pupils have started evening arts and crafts sessions.

Roz Peacock, head of textiles at the school, and its textiles technician Ellie Murray are going to host dress-making classes for adults across a six-week period starting next month.

Ellie is keen to encourage novices to take part.

She said: “Over the six weeks, students cover the basics of using the sewing machines and overlockers, using a commercial pattern, and ultimately making themselves a garment to wear.

“The course is aimed at beginners and those who wish to refresh existing skills.”

Artist Trudie Hawkins has also started a six-week evening course in portrait drawing and painting.

She added: “The course is aimed at anyone with an interest in portraiture, and all levels of skill and ability are welcome.”
