Sheena Norquay – Ridged Winter Landscapes (handstitching)


Create a small A5 or A4 winter landscape using running, whipped, and single/double whipped/laced running stitches. You will be shown how to draw contour and radiating lines on the pattern provided and how to use the stitches to create ridges and outlines on your landscape. The border can be quilted using a basketweave pattern or you can add a patterned fabric.  For the sky and loch you can use transparent fabrics.

Gillian Travis – Townscapes (max. 12 people)


On this workshop you will be able to create a wall hanging or panel of your own house or a townscape from a photograph of your choice. This could even be a holiday snap of some significant place. The resulting textile piece would then be a pleasing reminder of good times. This workshop includes some innovative design and technical skills also some contemporary approaches to appliqué, print and machine embroidery along with some useful shortcuts which will be transferable to other projects. I will be able to provide much of the specialist equipment used eg suitable printing blocks and fabric colouring equipment.

The cost for each workshop will be £35 (£40 for non members). to book a place contact Kath Owen:  owenkath3@gmail.com   01509 852974
