About the Course
Not sure how to use a sewing machine? Need a refresher? In this three hour session learn how to use a sewing machine and go home having made a cushion cover.
After this workshop you will be able to learn how to set up the machine and how to create different stitches. This workshop is aimed at complete beginners and will be taught in a maximum group size of six for optimum 1 - 1 time.
Your tutor will be Clare Walsh. Clare has always had a love of Textiles, dressmaking, felt making, silk paper making and printed textiles are particular interests and a passion for colour and texture inspire her work. Recent trips to India and a growing collection of old printing blocks havebeen at the centre ofblock printing workshops, but the use of the heat press add a new dimension to her printed textile work. Clare has exhibited her Textile work within Art Societies and galleries in the UK and shared her enthusiasm for Textiles as a teacher to all age groups for many years.
