Programme and Workshops 2016

............................................................................
                     More About Us
  • Saturday Morning Talks
This is an opportunity to hear textile artists discuss their work and inspiration and to see examples of their
work.
  • Saturday Afternoon Workshops

Sessions led either by our morning speaker or members.  This is a great opportunity for stitching together, to be inspired by the speaker and each other and to socialise in relaxed surroundings.  These sessions are to share ideas, to work towards branch, regional and national projects - but you can just bring along your current work if you wish!                    Young Embroiderers, eleven years and over, or younger members, if accompanied by an adult will be most welcome.

  • Day Schools

We hold four Day Schools a year led by experienced and knowledgeable tutors, (10am - 4pm) at a cost of £30 

  • Stitch Friday
  • Young Embroiderers' Group
  • Textile Library
  • Outings to textile-related destinations      
          
  • Monthly Branch Newsletter
