10:00am - 4:00pm

The gentle art of Japanese quilting has fascinated me for many years. I learnt the technique from my friend Rosemary Muntus in 1988 and in 1991 I was awarded two first prizes at The Great British Quilt Festival for a piece I made called Kamon 1. During this workshop I will introduce you to the delights of this technique. I have designed a lovely pouch using the Kagome design and a Sakura (Cherry Blossom) motif. I will discuss designs, demonstrate marking, hand stitching techniques and finishing techniques.

Students requirements

I will provide a kit with all the requirements needed to make the pouch which includes fabric, pattern, sashiko thread and sashiko needle. The cost of the kit is £20 payble to me on the day.

You will also need the following, please bring the items listed below:

A knitting needle for marking the design (approx 4mm or old size 8) or a Hera (Japanese marking tool)

Hand sewing kit to include pins, scissors, tacking thread, thimble etc.

Note pad, pencil, rule, paper scissors and masking tape.
