This course will appeal to those with a love of fabric, recycling, patchwork and experimenting with fabric.

This course is exciting and fun with students being encouraged to break the usual rules of patchwork and get back to basics. During the course you will make a small panel that will be developed into a glasses/phone case, mastering improvised piercing and embellishing with beads, buttons, embroidery etc. As the course progresses you will make a larger panel that can be made into a cushion or bag or could be the start of something larger for you to continue.

Students need to bring: a sewing machine and a basic sewing kit including quilting rule, rotary cutter, fabric scissors, A2 cutting mat, a selection of fabrics you wish to use. Christine will bring along extra fabrics, buttons, beads, threads, ribbons and beading which students can purchase on the day. Accommodation can be booked, subject to availability.
