If you would like a gentle introduction to creating your own textile art, this is the course for you. I can show you how to take inspiration from a single starting point and develop a design using simple techniques. You will dye threads and a background using a quick microwave process to begin.
We’ll pause for a lunch of fresh made soup and bread and you can take in the studio’s superb setting before we move on in the afternoon to stitching your piece. You will use a combination of needle felting and hand stitching to work on your original design with no experience necessary.
The Early Bird catches the worm, and if you arrive before the course starts at 10am you are welcome to join us for tea / coffee and home made biscuits, still warm from the oven. There is no additional charge for our ticket holders.

Thank you Sue for another excellent day learning how to produce textile pictures. As on previous occasions I have come away with lots of new ideas and feel very relaxed after working in such a beautiful environment. Lunch and morning cookies were delicious too.
I went on my own but two other ladies arrived for the same course. I was amazed at the end result we all went home with a beautiful, framed picture.
I would recommend a visit for anyone wishing to switch off and recharge their batteries!
