Following the success of our 2010 workshops we are really excited to have our Spring/Summer 2011 programme all worked out.
Our workshops are not just about learning new techniques and methods. We want you to leave at the end of the day feeling confident in your new found skills and inspired. It is also important to us that everyone enjoys their day, and to that end we encourage everyone to work at their own pace and ensure that they relish the time they have to create in. It is such a treat to be given a whole (undisturbed) day in which to sit down and make things with like minded people.
All our courses are held at Littleworth Hall, in Amberley, and run from 10 - 4. We provide a simple but delicious seasonal lunch and plenty of tea and coffee, homemade biscuits and cake to keep you fuelled throughout the day, we feel it is the little touches that make these days special.
You do not have to bring anything with you and there are no hidden costs. We provide all the materials to complete your project (included in the price). You will go home with a techniques file and a full set of instructions for completing or recreating your project. Of course you are also more than welcome to bring any sentimental scraps of fabric, or buttons or trimmings you really adore to include in your project . We do have a 'pop-up-shop' so if we have truly inspired you there is always the opportunity to buy what you need to start your own sewing projects at home. This also carries some of Sarah's fabrics so if you've been thinking of placing an order it will be hard to resist the temptation!
We have a maximum number of 8 people per workshop. This enables us to share our knowledge (and tea making skills) easily and for you to benefit from individual attention of Sarah Hardaker. Sarah is an established fabric designer with over 15 years of experience in the textile industry. Having worked for Nina Campbell, Osborne and Little, Habitat and Harlequin she set up her own company 2 years ago. It is great to have her knowledge at your fingertips for a day.
"Thank you Sarah & Jo for a luverly day! I arrived knowing very little and left much more confident and able to embroider french knots! I learnt loads and feel inspired to use my new skills as soon as possible."
"Many thanks Jo and Sarah for a great day - I came away inspired to tackle some creations on my own. I learnt a lot and feel a lot more confident about trying new techniques. Also felt very pampered with endless cups of tea and coffee, a delicious lunch and scrummy afternoon tea! May there be many more workshops!"
