Fun classes and workshops to take near Whitegate

After you retire, you suddenly have all this free time on your hands. So, what do you do with it?! A fantastic way to spend your time is to join a class or regular workshop to meet new people and learn new skills. Here are a few great classes and workshops to take near Whitegate.

Photography workshops

Love Your Lens is a one-woman photography show, led by Jane Burkinshaw, a professional photographer with over a decade’s worth of experience. She has a number of workshops available that range from the basics of camera settings all the way up to professional wedding photography.

You can even book one-to-one sessions for a more tailored learning experience. Sessions are taught from her very own home on Pickmere Lane in Wincham and her prices are very reasonable. What’s more, the positive reviews speak for themselves, so it’s well worth a try if you fancy learning more about photography.

Lip-reading classes

As you get older, hearing loss can creep up on you. It’s a natural part of the ageing process. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to suffer in silence. Read Our Lips can help you to combat partial or full hearing loss by teaching you how to read lips.

They hold two classes a week during term time at St John’s Church, Hartford, and you can even try your first session for free. Sessions last two hours each and you can expect free tea, biscuits and a good chat with people in the same boat as you are.

Art classes

Northwich Art Shop holds a number of events that teach a variety of art skills such as drawing, oil painting, mixed media and watercolour painting. The courses are taught by experienced artists who have their work in galleries all over the world.

As well as this, the shop itself has all the supplies you could ever need to kick-start your art hobby, so you’re in great hands. Have a look at the classes available and see if any take your fancy.

Gardening sessions

Every Wednesday starting April, you can come along to Grozone Community Garden to take part in Growing Connections. Growing Connections is a Brightlife-funded community project that is completely free to over 50s.

It gives you the opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people and rediscover your love of gardening. This is a fantastic opportunity to get out and keep active, so do come along.

Craft Workshops

The Cheshire Craft Workshop is a fantastic place to go for all things pottery, painting and crafts. You can stop by any day of the week between 10am and 5pm to do some relaxing pottery painting, or drop into one of their regular events to learn new skills.

Rest assured, you can look forward to a warm, welcoming and creative atmosphere at the CCW. So, if you love crafting, then this could be the ideal venue to frequent.
