Free Embroidery and Glass Painting Sessions

Durham Cricket Foundation will be running free embroidery and glass painting classes for people over 50 at the Riverside.

The sessions will run every Friday, starting 12th November, with glass paining classes taking place from 10am until 12pm, followed by embroidery from 12.30pm until 2.30pm.

The initiative is part of the Foundation’s “50 Not Out” project which aims to improve older people’s mental and physical wellbeing through a number of activities and social events.

The Foundation provides all materials and no previous experience is needed.

Embroidery Sessions

During these sessions, participants will learn about the basics of hand stitched decorative work, creating beautiful pieces using an array of stitches, leading up to appliqué work.

Appliqué is a technique in which fabric patches are layered on a foundation fabric, then stitched in place by hand or machine with the raw edges turned under or covered with decorative stitching.

These sessions take place on Fridays at the Riverside from 12.30pm until 2.30pm and are suitable for anyone over 50. They are free of charge and all materials are provided.

Glass Painting Sessions

These classes will cover mixing paints and various pattern techniques, used on glass.

Participants will upcycle empty jars and bottles to design new decorative pieces that they can keep.

The sessions take place on Fridays at the Riverside from 10.00am until 12.00pm and are suitable for anyone over 50. They are free of charge and all materials are provided.

Free walking Cricket Sessions

As part of the “50 Not Out” project, the Foundation also runs free walking cricket sessions, open to people over 50.

The Foundation currently runs walking cricket sessions in Washington and Willington.
