About the Course
This course is exciting and fun with students being encouraged to break the usual rules of patchwork and get back to basics. During the course you will make a small panel that will be developed into a glasses/phone case, mastering improvised piercing and embellishing with beads, buttons, embroidery etc. As the course progresses you will make a larger panel that can be made into a cushion or bag or could be the start of something larger for you to continue.
