CREATIVE SEWING WEEKENDS 2019 - 2020

          13 - 15th March 2020 

 

March 13th - 15th 2020

Tree for all Seasons - Jennie Rayment

A wide variety of techniques are covered in creating this scenic vision. The same tree will be viewed through all the seasons on a background of pieced, appliqued, curved, textured and woven backgrounds. Learn many different techniques that can be applied to other projects. The four panels could be completed as one piece or may as four separate creations. For those who like free motion - here is a chance to explore but if terrified - then stick with your walking foot. Use up all those scraps in a variety of intriguing ways. Complete all four designs in the two day workshop ready for quilting. 

 

 

 

 

 

Coming up in September 2020

4th - 6th September Japanese Folded

Explore and experiment with shape and form. Wrap circles round a variety of geometric shapes for some amazing designs and patterns. Play with colour and explore the fascinating ways a simple technique can have fascinating possibilities. Create boxes, use for bags, quilts and cushions or ingenious table mats and other home decor options. Go large - go small - fold away and fabric play! 

The venue

 

The weekends will be held at the New Place Hotel, Shirrel Heath (near Wickham, Hampshire).  This fabulous listed hotel has a purpose built conference centre, excellent leisure suite and well equipped bedrooms with en-suite facilities. The hotel is fabulously decorated and will be the location of breakfast and dinner. Our workshops will be held in the well equipped, light and roomy conference rooms. And to relax, there is a large leisure suite with pool, Jacuzzi, gym etc etc – oh and there’s a nice bar!

 

The price for the weekend is just £385 per person which includes full-board plus evening entertainment and workshops on Friday afternoon, all day Saturday and Sunday.  We can also offer day rates for those not wishing to stay, and partner rates for those who wish to bring a partner.  Great news is that the weekends start at 2pm Friday – with arrival and settle in, then an optional 2 hour class from 3.30-5.30. We finish at 4pm Sunday

Your hosts:  Wendy Gardiner and Jennie Rayment, who are on hand throughout the weekend to ensure you have a relaxing, trouble-free weekend.
