A variety of patchwork & quilting techniques will be included on the course, covering both traditional and contemporary methods and potentially using machine & hand stitching. You will learn how to measure, cut and assemble your fabrics, consider the use of colour and overall design impact and learn decorative finishing techniques. Beginners will be able to work on a small scale personal project of their choice such as a cot/lap quilt, cushion cover, purse or bag or even an Xmas stocking! Returning learners are welcome to bring an ongoing project to continue working on, or to sample & start something new
