The Course

An opportunity to try out Victorian Crazy Patchwork. This patchwork technique was a favourite of the Victorians. A showcase for carefully hoarded scraps of choice fabrics, this is a chance to let your imagination run riot with embroidered decoration and beads. We will make traditional pincushions or needle-keeps, or you can just start a piece that can keep on growing to become anything you can imagine!

This course is suitable for beginners, and teaches both patchwork and embroidery.
