Quilt in a day course FOR TWO people with Amanda Jane Ogden

X

Description

If you have always wanted to try quilting, this course is for you. This is a one-day course, including six hours of individual tuition time for TWO people, for absolute beginners, to quilting and patchwork. Great for two family members or two friends to do together! The course will introduce you to all the basics for making a quilt: choosing fabric, cutting, joining pieces to make blocks, joining blocks to make rows, adding a border, quilting, trimming and finally binding a quilt. You will leave with a small quilt as a sample and with the skills and information to go ahead with tackling a full-size quilt in the future. The course is taught at my studio, which is a 3-minute walk from my home in Kent. You only need to know how to use a sewing machine before you come. This is a full, but relaxed course, which will be tailored to you both (as the only learners that day), so that you get the most out of it. There will be lots of hints and tips given throughout the day. Covid-19 information: during the day, masks are not required (but can be worn if preferred) a one-metre distance is maintained, the window is kept open (so bring an extra layer of clothing!), all surfaces and equipment are cleaned and sanitised before your arrival. There is a wash basin available for you to wash your hands. Tutor information: Amanda Jane Ogden is a qualified and experienced teacher of textiles, who designs fabrics and writes quilt and sewing patterns for national magazines and for sale online.

What's included in the price?

All the tools and equipment for the day are provided, including the use of a sewing machine. Materials (fabric, wadding and thread) are included. You will be asked your colour preferences before you come and a carefully curated selection of fabrics will be waiting for you when you arrive. (However, if you particularly want to bring your own fabrics, Amanda can offer advice once the booking is made.) Coffee or tea is provided (with biscuits) mid-morning and mid-afternoon. Please bring a packed lunch. The cost (£190) covers the course fee and materials for BOTH participants.
