There are still a few spaces left on the following classes:
BEGINNERS QUILTING & MACHINE KNOW-HOW (tutor Pat Stone).
10:15 – 4pm, Sunday 14th May, 2017. £45, excluding materials.
Enthusiastic and expert tutor Pat Stone will spend the day focusing on all aspects of machine quilting. Using samples, Pat will enable you to explore traditional quilting techniques, decorative stitches, free motion quilting and much more. Packed with tips and tricks but laid back and stress free, Pat’s classes are a goldmine of experience and creativity. This is a beginners class, so no previous experience is necessary but with so many great techniques and tips, this class would also suit quilters wishing to expand their quilting repertoire.
WALDORF-STYLE DOLL-MAKING (tutor Hannah Sanguinetti).
10:15 – 4pm, Saturday17th & 24th June, 2017. £80, including doll materials but excluding material for clothes and hair.
This class runs over two full days and is for making a 32cm Waldorf-style cloth doll. These are beautiful, rounded dolls full of individual character and using all natural materials. The doll itself is sewn from special cotton stretch-jersey and shaped and stuffed with wool fleece. Materials for making the doll itself are included in the course cost but participants will need to provide their own fabric for clothes and yarn for hair. Suitable options for these will be discussed during the first class. Doll-making is a wonderful way of bringing together different textile crafts and the class will include some very basic needle-felting, embroidery and crochet along with machine and hand sewing. Although this is a beginner doll-making class, experience with basic machine sewing and simple hand sewing is necessary.
