Join us for an introduction to all things quilting! With your tutor, you will work through every step needed to make a quilt, starting with choosing fabric and patterns, to finally making your own binding. You’ll be using these techniques to make a 30x30cm mini quilt in your choice of fabrics and colours to take home with you and proudly display as a table centrepiece.

Process Information:

  • Choosing fabrics and complimentary colours
  • Researching traditional patterns
  • Cutting fabric accurately
  • Piecing the top quilt pieces
  • Pressing open seams
  • Sandwiching your quilt top and backing securely
  • Quilting by machine and hand
  • Making binding
  • Finishing and embellishing.

With all these skills you’ll then be equipped to make any kind of quilt at home, from cushions and jackets to bed throws.

  • Who is the workshop for?

    Suitable for adults who have never quilted before but are confident using a sewing machine. As well as those who may have previous experience and wish to use the day to gain new inspiration.

  • Do I need to bring anything?

    Students are required to bring their own sewing machine and it must be in good working order. If you want to attend but don't have a sewing machine, please get in touch prior to booking and we may be able to provide one to borrow. All fabrics, threads and other materials are provided.

Workshop and course bookings can be cancelled and refunded up until 7 days before the scheduled start date. Our workshops support the work we do as a charity, and because materials and equipment are ordered in advance, we regret that refunds cannot be offered less than 7 days before the workshop date.

Please note that Eventbrite’s booking fee is non-refundable, as are any donations submitted alongside a ticket payment. Bookings cannot be transferred between courses however bookings can be transferred to another person in the event that you are unable to attend on the day. In the event that The Art House needs to cancel a workshop for any reason your ticket will be refunded in full.
