KICK off your new year with a new hobby thanks to a series of craft sessions running at Hereford’s Hobbycraft store throughout January.

Beginner classes in sewing, card-making, knitting and crochet patterns will be running on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-3pm.

Open to everyone, the classes will give people a chance to try out different arts and crafts before splashing out – with ‘craft experts’ around to lend a helping hand.

Store manager Roxanne Oates said: “A new year is the perfect time to rediscover a past hobby or start a new one.

“The skills we have picked out will be perfect for those looking for creative ways to learn a new skill or do something fun together as a family.”
