Quilting and Patchwork with Philip

Date: 2nd May 2020
Start Time: 11:00 am
End Time: 3:00 pm

Philip Anderson will be talking about and demonstrating quiltingtechniques and methods.

The original idea of quilting was to recycle scraps of fabric to create useful items, such as bedspreads and cushion covers. 

The techniques used have gradually evolved into a vast range of styles, from simple squares and triangles to an intricate, decorative art form. 

There is a danger that once tried, the craft can become addictive, leading to walls, beds, tables and any empty space being covered with treasured works of art! Philip will show how the most complicated designs can be based on the simplest of techniques.

Guided tours, the mouse trail, films and refreshments in the café, along with gifts / souvenirs, will also be available.
