Workshop on 5th September

There are still places left on this workshop


A contemporary take on the traditions of Quiltmaking; we will create wool wadding to incorporate colour and design and create overlays of dyed silk sheers to produce a small quilt. Ideas gained will transform your concept of a quilt!

This is a 'hands on', fun, workshop for all levels. Bring an inspirational picture to guide your choice of colour, line and texture, or borrow one of mine.

Next Meeting 4th September

The Speaker at the next meeting is Barbara Weeks


Creating colour on cloth is the starting point of her quilts, which often feature painted silk and hand made felt. Her inspiration recently has been drawn from the marine ecosystems of the Coral Triangle in the Pacific. But she also delight in themes from the natural world nearer to home.

The trader will be Brenda Walker
