Hi to all who regularly check my blogs - I am very pleased to say that I will be holding my first patchwork workshops in my new home on Saturday 30th August, 1pm - 4pm and Saturday 6th September, 1pm - 4pm.
I will begin with the hexagon pin cushion design (which can alternatively be left flat and form the centre piece for a cushion), and there will be several different fabric themes to choose from: Canadian; Australian; seaside; flowers and birds. The finished piece can then be embellished with any beads or sequins which I have, or you might like to bring with you. These workshops are suitable for all ages and levels of sewing!
If you would like to come along, please phone or email me a.s.a.p. and let me know which fabric theme you have chosen so that I can cut out your hexagons ready. As always, everything is included in the price of the workshop which is £12.50 for the afternoon.
Looking forward to seeing friends old and new at the first workshop.
The first painting afternoon will be on Thursday 11th September 2-4pm, with a follow up workshop on Thursday 25h September, 2-4pm. If you have wanted to paint with oils, and paint a portrait using oil paint, these afternoons will be a good introduction using a technique I have devised and used successfully with many art classes. These workshops are suitable for all ages and levels of experience.
You will need to bring a canvas, at least A3 size, and an old t-shirt to cut up. All paints etc. will be provided.
The cost of each afternoon session is £6.50. Please email or phone a.s.a.p. to book your place.
