Applied Craft Workshops

There is nothing better than giving a gift or decorating your home with items you have handmade yourself.

This one-day workshop with tutor Rebecca Barbour will give you the opportunity to make various Christmas decorations from fabric.  Suitable for anyone that has completed the Beginners Sewing weekend workshop or has a basic sewing knowledge.  

Within this workshop there will be a variety of Christmas decorations that you can choose from to make including: bunting, wreaths, fabric baubles, angels and birds - gorgeous items to give as gifts or keep for yourself!  Choose what you wish to make during this fun, relaxed, creative session.  

If you complete the Introduction to Free Motion Embroidery workshop the day before you can incorporate the skills that you have learned to add embellishments to your items.
