If you want to really push your patchwork and crafting skills with a big, bespoke project but you’re not confident enough to take it on by yourself then this six week workshop course is just what you need.

Each session will start with your tutor demonstrating a new technique, to help inspire you and develop new skills. You’ll then be supported – individually and as a group – to develop and create your own project, to take home at the end of the course.

Our friendly, experienced tutor will be on hand throughout to work with you to get exactly the results you’re looking for, and you’ll also be encouraged to support each other as a group.

What do I need to join the course?

You should have experience of basic patchwork and quilting techniques and you may benefit from having attended our range of patchwork and quilting courses.

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

Some basic resources will be supplied- your tutor will advise you on further materials you may need once you have decided on your individual project.

How will I be taught?

The tutor will deliver a demonstration at the beginning of every session so that you can learn new techniques and improve those you already have. You will work on your own project with tutor guidance and advice.

What will I learn?

In this workshop you will select, design and complete your own project piece. Our specialist tutor will be on hand at all times to advise, support and guide you in this.
