Patchwork has so many possibilities, particularly when you allow yourself to freely collage with fabric! In this class, aimed at complete beginners, we will cut up a mixture of vintage and up-cycled fabrics and rework them into new designs.
There will be no precision sewing though you will be taught how to use a cutting mat and rotary cutter. These tools make light work of age old techniques such as log cabin and crazy patchwork. We will also tear up fabrics into strips and play with scale. You will end up with finished pieces that can be made up into cushion covers, lavender bags, pot holders and greetings cards. These can either be made up on the day or finished at home. You may even be so pleased with your experiments that you just want to frame them as Textile Art!
