Explore your inner artist through textiles in this entirely enjoyable and immersive appliqué workshop.

What you will learn

Participants will have the opportunity to create pictures or interpretations utilising a full range of fabrics and haberdashery. The end result will be a wall hanging or picture. You might even like to apply to a cushion, bag or personal item of your choice. This session will also incorporate freehand machine embroidery.

In ReTweed’s core training programmes, appliqué is the most positively reviewed session for our students. It has artistic elements, a therapeutic dimension and a wonderful end result
