Summer Workshop News...

"Who knows where the time goes ?" I can't believe we're half way through the year… Much of June has been taken up with workshops, both in Freshwater and Newport. Here are some of the photos taken at the recent workshops at The Patchwork Cafe and there's more photos if you follow this link. Scroll down for the new workshop dates... 

The Café workshops have been really successful and there's been so much interest that we've got more dates arranged for August and we've just added some more NEW dates :  

Sat 6th Aug. & Mon 29th Aug. 10 - 4pm.
NEW Dates : Wed 3rd Aug. & Wed 10th Aug. 10 - 4pm. 
Workshops for beginners. Simple felt making techniques will be explained, with everyone making one or more pieces of flat felt, experimenting with blending colours & textures as in the photos below. Plenty of ideas & examples of interesting projects will be on display.

We've also added a NEW workshop for beginners:

'PAINTING with FIBRES'  Fri 12th Aug. 10-4pm.
This workshop will show how to create a felt picture or landscape from wet-felted multi-coloured 'pre-felts'. The finished felt piece can be used as a wall hanging, cushion cover or a cover for a book.
