12 December: Local charity offers residents the chance to learn to earn

Creative Sparks in Kennington is offering Lambeth residents the chance to get creative and earn while they learn.

The “Learn 2 Earn Craft Market” free six month course will give young people aged 18 to 30, not in work or education, the opportunity work with professional artists to create hand crafted goods, including ceramics, textiles and print making on a fully accredited training course. The earning part will come from selling these goods at craft markets in London.

Peter who has been on the course said "I love the experience of being out on a market. Learn2earn is teaching me how to make crafts and profit. I feel such a sense of pride having made something and it having been sold!"

The course takes place on Wednesday’s, 11am to 5pm at Lilian Baylis Community Hub, Lollard Street, SE11 6PY. If you would like to find out more email or visit
