Two Day Textile stitch fabric dyeing weekend course Explore Design Stitch workshop class

3rd March @ 10:00 am - 4th March @ 4:00 pm

£200
Explore Design Stitch

This two day course begins with a walk along the tideline gathering visual information to use back in the studio.

We then explore design through mark making, picking up on the colours, textures and shapes found outside the studio.

The afternoon will be spent preparing fabrics and yarns with dyes ready for day two, which is all about transferring your ideas onto fabric and exploring basic hand stitching.

No prior knowledge is necessary and all materials will be provided. You will take home a sketchbook bursting with ideas and plenty of samples to inspire future projects.

The two day course costs £200 per person and includes all your materials, lunch and refreshments. The course runs from 10am until 4pm each day.

 

If your preferred dates are not available please send us an email and we will do our best to accommodate you. To buy a gift voucher for a textile course click here.

"We had a really lovely morning at Shore Cottage, so relaxing we could have stayed a lot longer. The session was perfectly planned with the right balance of instruction, creativity, drinking tea and making. The chocolate cake was also excellent. "

"I must admit that I really didn't think I would be able to produce much in two hours and was therefore amazed at the end result! We stopped half way through for another drink and beautiful homemade brownies (made by Laura) and then we continued with our 'masterpieces!' At the end of the session we all went home with a beautiful, framed picture.I would recommend a visit for anyone wishing to switch off and recharge their batteries!"

"The workshop is excellent, but I can't emphasise enough how special Sue, Laura and Kris make the whole experience. Their ability to put everyone at ease, encourage and show infinite patience is what makes all their courses a must - as well as the wonderful hospitality - lunch and afternoon tea are yummy! If you are thinking of a Shore Cottage Studio workshop - don't hesitate - you won't regret it"

"Had the most lovely afternoon here today. Lovely friendly people who run this place. Gorgeous views. Can’t wait to come back again. Could have stayed and just watched the lovely views. Would recommend this place."

" I had the most marvellous Saturday with Sue beachcombing, drawing, printing, playing, stitching, dying and a whole host of other things. It will be an amazing way to spend a few hours, day or weekend. I only wish I could be there more often."
