Explore your inner designer

Explore your inner designer…yip this workshop is just the best. Like our applique workshop, it really does provide you with the opportunity to explore your creative flair. We will examine how different colours, fabrics, patterns work together and help you on your way to becoming a fantastic patchworker!

Learn the basic skills in a day

Learn the basic skills required to make your own patchwork quilts. Over the 5 hours, we will piece a basic mini 9 patch quilt top, then layer it up, quilt and bind it leaving you with a small piece of completed wall art to take home with you. You will then be able to use the skills we have practised to make throws, cushions, quilts and beyond.

This workshop is for beginners or those with a little basic sewing machine experience. As long as you can sew in reasonably straight lines, you will be fine!

Workshop is delivered by our experienced tutor

All materials are supplied for this workshop. This includes your choice from a selection of material packs plus wadding and backing fabrics. Juliet Porter, ReTweed’s Main Trainer will lead this workshop. Juliet comes with many years experience of teaching and creative industry and has already been described by students and participants as ‘inspirational’ and she is . She is a font of creative and artistic ideas. Juliet will gently guide you step-by-step to create your own original patchwork masterpiece. We will be working in a small group in our ReTweed workshop.
