What you will do
3 hour workshop
In this workshop, Kate will teach you how to prepare your fabrics and stitch them together to make a traditional hexagon quilt top. You will come away with a small pieced section of patchwork and the skills you need to continue with your project at home. English Paper Piecing is a slow hand sewing technique, which can be tricky to master, and the creation of a full quilt is often a labour of love. However by the end of the class you should be raring to get started on that new family heirloom!
No previous patchwork or quilting experience is necessary, however it will be helpful (but not essential) if you can thread a needle and complete very basic hand stitches.
Your tutor Kate is a textile designer, illustrator and blogger based in South London. Kate's work is inspired by the city around her as well as her travels, and her style leans towards that of the 1950s and 60s. Kate's designs feature on fabrics, home furnishings, stationery and accessories. She produces art prints, works to commission, and loves teaching workshops and sharing her passion for fabric! In addition, Kate currently teaches Fashion & Textiles at a local 6th form college.
