I offer individually tailored workshops and courses in Patchwork and Quilting for guests staying in our Cottage and/or Apartment , or anywhere on the Isle of Anglesey and nearby in North Wales.
The Cottage – and orchard with spectacular views across the Menai Strait to Snowdonia – sits in the grounds of our house and is an ideal base for mixing your holiday with a day or more of quilting tuition.
The Apartment with underfloor heating comprises two en-suite double bedrooms, separate lounge, views of the sea and Snowdonia from living room and front bedroom.
You can choose to work in Traditional Hand Stitched Wholecloth, using Celtic designs drawn from Wales’ long history of Quilting.
You can experiment with contemporary techniques such as Free Cut Curves and Machine Quilting.
Look out at the mountains of Snowdonia from my workroom and contemplate the wealth of ancient Welsh history surrounding you!
Before a workshop you will be sent a list of requirements which will include fabrics and threads, which can also be purchased on Anglesey, where we have very good shops selling supplies for Patchwork and Quilting. You will also be expected to bring your own sewing machine if you are resident in the UK. If you are not, there are options we can discuss.
Workshops and courses last from 10:00 – 16:00 each day with a short break for lunch I often find it hard to stop people long enough to eat!
- I take from 1 – 4 people in these workshops.
- Charges are: For a single person/day £120.00
- For two people/day working on the same project £180.00 (ie £90.00 per person)
- For three people/day working on the same project £240.00 (ie £80.00 per person)
- For four people/day working on the same project £280.00 (ie £70.00 per person)
- These prices apply whether you are renting our Cottage or staying elsewhere.
It is possible to have a single one day workshop; or a short course running over a few days. Courses can be devised to suit your individual requirements and holiday plans. Of course you don’t need to be staying at our Cottage to be able to have lessons with me.
Whether you are a total beginner, or already have some experience of Patchwork and Quilting, we can discuss what you wish to learn on your course.
