Evening Class First Wednesday Evening Of The Month

I have taught Creative Textiles for over ten years. 'Textile Tuesday' and 'Textile Thursday as they are affectionately known are a combination of traditional patchwork, quilting, fabric gift making, machine skills, unusual materials and lots of creativity. 

If you are interested in any sessions you need ring and book your session to secure your place as there are limited places per session or come along on the day and book for future sessions.

Sessions are £10 and include refreshments and the use of the studio equipment.

I bring along lots of inspiration, work in progress and much much more.
The classes will be as shown. Often Sessions will be added when students are wanting to achieve certain techniques and I will update these dates as and when it is required.
