Young Michelle Rogers from Bray Area Partnership has been in touch about a bunch of groovy online workshops for November and December.

And the very groovy thing is, they’re really free, baby.

From upcycling your furniture to the upkeep of your cycle, use your lockdown time to learn something truly useful.

And then spend Christmas and beyond bragging to your friends about it.

Here’s the lowdown…

Get Crafty!

There are two remaining Lockdown Creative Workshops:

In Top Tips for Furniture Upcycling on 27th November, you’ll learn how to prepare your furniture for upcycling, painting techniques, varnishing and oiling.

In Reimagine with Decoupage on 30th November you’ll learn how to decorate damaged items with paper to give them a new lease of life.

On Yer Bike!

Keeping active and being outdoors is important for our physical and mental health and well-being. If you fancy dusting off that bike in the shed, the practical Introduction to Bike Maintenance workshop on 3rd December will teach you how to maintain your own bike and keep it running smoothly and safely.

Conversational English Classes

The Partnership’s Fáilte Isteach conversational English classes for people from new communities are also now running online via Zoom in small friendly groups.

You need to have access to a smart phone, tablet or laptop/computer and internet access to take part in this training but if you do not, contact the Partnership as they may be able to help you with this.

The workshops are open to people living in the Greystones and Bray Municipal District areas (including Delgany, Greystones, Kilcoole and Newcastle Lower), and certain other qualifying criteria apply.

You can find out more on the Bray Area Partnership website here, or get in touch directly on 012868266 to find out more and book your place.

The workshops are funded under the partnership’s Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP). The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) 2018-2022 is funded by the Irish Government through the Department of Rural and Community Development and co-funded by the European Social Fund under the Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning (PEIL) 2014-2020.
