Angela Daymond
Kantha Work on Woad Fabric

Kantha is a traditional hand sewing technique which originated in Indian about 500 years ago. In this relaxing workshop you will be combining kantha stitching with heritage woad dyed fabric. Woad is one of the oldest blue plant dyes in the world and was grown extensively across Lincolnshire in the 1800’s. 

Kantha designs are traditionally taken from nature and the fabric covered with various styles of running stitch. You will be shown how to transfer a hare or heron onto fabric before stitching within the outlines using different thickness of thread. A background will be stitched focusing on texture and technique. This stitching can be mounted into a frame or form a centre piece of a bag. 
Denise Priestley
Strawberry Keepsake Box

A round lidded box especially designed by Denise for this workshop.  It measures 20cm diameter and 18cm height.  The frill is optional.

Heather Wright
Oriental Inspiration

A day spent glorying in the wealth of enchantment that are vintage Japanese kimono silks; with a little bit of gentle sewing, and using the simplest of basic shapes, you’ll have a pretty pin-cushion to take home with you.
