Quilt Academy Programme

We’ve listened to feedback and are delighted to bring you an extensive range of subjects, all led by expert tutors covering everything from quilting to printing, textile manipulation to surface decoration.
Classes range from 90 minute sessions for those wanting to dip a toe into a new craft, plus plenty of half day (3 hour) sessions and some longer, really immerse yourself, classes of 1 and 2 days. An Academy class is your chance to learn from international known experts in a great environment, picking up lots of tips and techniques as you go.
There may be additional costs for materials or a list of items to bring (see workshop timetable for details).
