About the Course
Experiment with vintage fabric. A wonderful opportunity to try a whole variety of experimental textile techniques! We will work our way through the basics of applique, machine embroidery, collage, 'no rules' patchwork and needle felting...but with silk not wool! Lots of fun, lots of demos, then a chance to play, using a wonderful selection of vintage and reclaimed textiles. Suitable for complete beginners and anyone who wants to kick start their creativity!
Textile designer Jayne Emerson has a wealth of experience selling her designs to clients such as Chanel and Calvin Klein, she is also the author of 6 craft books. Jayne has a treasure trove of vintage and up-cycled fabrics that she will bring with her for all to use at the workshop.
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.
