Make a patchwork star

Saturday 17 November 2018


The course

Create an heirloom decoration for the festive season. These patchwork stars were a favourite in Victorian homes, and are a beautiful way to showcase carefully hoarded scraps of favourite fabrics.

The tutor

Charlotte Dawber trained as a teacher of dress and textiles, specialising in embroidered and printed textiles and theatrical costume, and is a qualified teacher in the Adult Learning and Skills sector.

She focused my early career on historic textiles, gaining first a teaching qualification and undertaking study at Bath Museum of Costume, with a dissertation on Venetian Lace, a M.Litt in Gallery Studies with a thesis looking at Early English Domestic Embroideries, and a Ph.D in Art History looking at the impact of religion on costume and textiles.
