Our Courses

We offer courses for a range of experience levels, mostly taught by Wendy who is a qualified teacher of adults as well as being a very experienced patchworker who regularly exhibits her work.

The dedicated classroom is next door but one to the shop and was converted in 2006. The interior was designed to provide a light, airy, comfortable space for up to 10 students at a time, with ample sockets at individual tables and extra space for cutting mats and ironing boards.  Quilts are hung on the walls for inspiration and ideas, and there are many other examples of Wendy's work for students to look at.

Details of courses and one-day classes for the next few months are below, please get in touch if you would like any more details or to book a place on any of the courses.

Please note: all classes need to be booked in advance, and paid for in full when booking.  Workshop fees can be transferred with a minimum of 14 days notice, but no refunds will be given unless we have to cancel a class due to lack of numbers.
