We will be using textiles to create items for display, to gift or to use.  Themes may include: embroidery, fabric printing, layering, weaving, rag rugging and felting. The course will offer a practical introduction to a range of textiles processes and techniques, with an opportunity to learn and develop skills, personalise projects and produce something unique, in a friendly environment.
