Patchwork and quilting are both traditional, relaxing and captivating crafts. Combining these methods to make your own project will give you the opportunity to create your own, unique and individual designs, perhaps using fabrics from your own or your child’s favourite old clothes to create a ‘memory patchwork’. This beginner’s course will equip you with the basic skills to make a cushion panel or other small item to take home with you and enable you to go on to make colourful quilts, throws, wall hangings and more.

What are you doing to keep learners safe?

The safety of our learners and staff is our top priority and we’ve made some big changes to our centres, from socially-distanced training rooms to staggered start times. Although things will look different, our staff will be as friendly and helpful as ever and we’re really excited to welcome learners back.

If you’re concerned about visiting one of our centres, please get in touch so we can discuss it with you.

What do I need to join the course?

Enthusiasm and a desire to learn a new craft! Some knowledge of using a sewing machine is useful but not essential as hand and machine sewing techniques will be covered during the course.

What do I need to bring with me to the first session?

You should bring:

  • a small selection of cotton fabrics. e.g. a fat quarter bundle
  • fabric scissors
  • 30cm ruler or quilting ruler.

How will I be taught?

You will be taught and supported by an experienced and enthusiastic tutor, take part in a range of activities including demonstrations, group and individual work and receive support for your own ideas.

What will I learn?

On the course you will learn:

  • the different tools and techniques to use when making simple patchwork and quilted items
  • how to use templates to cut out and stitch shapes together to create different projects
  • the basics of quilting and adding further layers to complete your project.

What could I do next?

You may wish to develop your skills further with our developing your patchwork and quilting skills course. Your tutor will provide more information about this at the end of your course. You may also consider some of our other Adult Learning courses such as knitting, dressmaking, pattern making, flower arranging, mindfulness and photography or computer skills, English, maths and employability courses.

Can we help you to learn?
