Folk Art Applique Workshop

There are still places on the Folk Art Applique course I am running for Kate Jackson at MAKE in Allendale on 18th September. The course costs £60 and includes a delicious lunch at the Allendale Bakery and all materials. Check out for details on how to book.
The course looks to American appliqued quilts, folk art and domestic still life for inspiration. You will build up a pieced picture using traditional hand stitching techniques - applique, piecing and embroidery using a variety of fabrics. I will be there to guide you in terms of inspiration, design and composition. In the one day course you should be able to complete a piece like this ( if you work hard!).

I like doing pots and flowers but I encourage students to come up with their own ideas. Here is some work in progress from the last course I ran ( from student Anna Nesbitt)
