SEWING WORKSHOPS

‘Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.’ 

Passing on my passion for crafts and helping people to access their own creativity is what drives my teaching. Encouraging people to not just copy, but to allow themselves to find new and ultimately their own ways of making things, is such a joy.

I’d like to invite you, your family, friends and colleagues to join me at my workshops, which are available for all skill levels.

When:  Commencing 7. February 2018, Wednesdays for 8 weeks from 1 – 4 pm

What: Paper cut quilting developed my Martina Latimer combines two traditional techniques in new ways. Quilting, while beloved, often is associated with old fabric scraps, twee teacup patterns and nan’s reading chair. During this class the students will be encouraged to think outside the conventional practice. We will create individual patterns by paper cutting which then will be translated into pattern templates and sewing steps and ultimately put together to a quilt. Students will encounter all the traditional methods of quilting and paper cutting whilst creating their own contemporary quilt.
Basic sewing experience is an advantage. Students are asked to bring a sewing machine and fabrics after the first class.

How much: $ 400
