Quilt in a Day, one-to-one (in-person) course 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 at least six hours of individual (one-to-one) tuition time, for absolute beginners, to introduce you to quilting and patchwork. The course will teach you 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 in my studio, which is next to my home. 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 (as the only learner that day), so that you get the most out of it. There will be lots of additional information, 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 washbasin available for you to wash your hands. Tutor information: Amanda Jane Ogden is a qualified and experienced teacher of textiles, who designs fabrics, writes quilt patterns for national magazines and for sale online and makes quilts to commission.

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.
