Craft and Computer Centre

Craft and Computer Centre in Earlsdon Coventry

What does it do?

What goes on at the Gilbert Richards Centre?

At the centre you can
  • take up a new hobby, such as pottery, silk-painting or spinning
  • share your skills with others in a craft group, like quilting, beading or knitting
  • learn woodwork
  • join an art class
  • start to use a computer and surf the internet
  • enjoy stimulating conversation
  • meet new people
  • hire a wheelchair

We work to suit you by having groups led by voulnteers as well as groups led by private tutors.

Volunteer-led groups

You can join a group that is informal and has the chance to meet people interested in the same things as you.

These small groups are ‘self-help’ and you can learn a craft or how to use a computer, with a chat and a cup of tea and the support of a skilled volunteer.

Private tutor-led sessions

You might prefer to learn a new skill or renew an existing skill in a more formal, structured setting. If this is the case, these tutor led sessions in ceramics, sculpturing, painting in oils or water colours or art might be the class for you.
