About the Course

Create a Hand-stitched Textile Bird.
A Winsy is a bird which can be found flying through the forest next to the workshop of Murgatroyd & Bean. These small, colourful birds have flamboyant wings and tails and are known to perch upon highly decorative plinths or nests which dot the forest like little jewels.

Over the course of the day you will learn how to create your own, 3D Winsy bird which will sit upon a cotton reel plinth, made from felt, fabric scraps, hand embroidery and a few tall tales. Suitable for those with some previous hand sewing experience.

What you will need:
You will need to bring your needle kit, embroidery scissors and a stubby, Sylko-style cotton reel.
All other tools and materials will be provided.

You can turn any of our courses into a short break by staying in our on site accommodation. When you book a residential package you will get discounted accommodation in our stylish boutique hostel located in the centre of Cirencester in the Cotswolds right next door to New Brewery Arts. Our former 19th Century Cotswold stone brewery barrel store has been beautifully transformed into 21st century accommodation, light and well-appointed with a craftsman’s attention to detail. We offer guest accommodation for up to 43 people over two floors in 14 rooms, with a choice of single, bunk, family and double bedrooms, 12 with en-suite facilities. A ground floor disabled-friendly room is also available. The hostel provides a stylish communal dining and relaxation area, self-catering kitchen, laundry facilities and lockers for your bike. As with all our courses and workshops these are led by experienced tutors and as you will be part of a small group there is plenty of time to focus on you.

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