About the Course

Gardens are a delightful source of inspiration for a folk art textile picture. You may be inspired by your own garden – perhaps a favourite tree or flower or maybe your vegetable patch! It could be, however, that you have fond memories of a garden you have visited or, perhaps, just invent your own dream garden. This theme has lots of scope for your imagination and creativity to flow and you will be guided through the process, step by step of making a unique picture to treasure.

You will be shown how to make your textile picture entirely by hand sewing. Sharon’s quirky style will inspire you to include buttons and trimmings to give your picture a unique look of your own. Sharon will provide ideas sheets and reference/inspirational books etc. and all fabric needed, although students are welcome to use their own favourite pieces if they like.
All materials are provided. Only a very basic knowledge of sewing is required.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
