Dianne is an amazing artist and the course takes place in her workshop full of inspiration.
Her work is incredibly imaginative, using recycled fabrics to produce beautiful pieces and she is very happy to share her ideas and techniques.
I have been on 3 of her day courses now (the others were felting and rags to bags and rugs) and will be going back for more.
The courses are small so that everyone gets individual attention and help as needed. Dianne is an extremely patient and unflappable teacher.
It is a privilege to learn from someone so talented and I have come home buzzing with ideas of how to use some of my stash of fabric.
PS The lunch was delicious too.
