Join Eva from Slow Stitch Studio to play with beautiful scraps of fabric and stitch your own small quilt to display on your wall or develop further into something larger. Eva will talk you through techniques of patchwork and stitches to use. You’ll gather ideas and develop your designs all under the gaze of her knowledge and expertise. She’ll guide and educate, talk about the history of quilting and leave you with your mind feeling full!

Steph Liddle will host ‘Ceramics: Surface Pattern + Illustration on Cast Ceramics’ (1.30pm – 4pm)
