Selwyn Community Education is based at Selwyn College, Kohimarama, Auckland.
Craft, Coffee and Conversation is a series new to our programme in 2019.
Over a range of Sunday afternoons 1 - 4 PM, join us to learn a new craft and meet others in the community.
Leave the kids at home, forget about the housework, don’t worry about dinner – instead, get creative while learning how to make a different craft each week, and give yourself the opportunity to chill out, while having fun! Just enrol for the Sundays that suit you. On each Sunday workshop, experienced tutors will introduce different crafts which you'll learn. You'll take home your completed items, plus the knowledge of how to make these again. Materials are included for each workshop fee.
