Following the sell-out success of a lovely quilt-making workshop in March with contemporary quilt maker Cassandra Ellis, Charleston has invited her back to give you the opportunity to start a quilt before the winter kicks in! As seen in Elle Decoration and Liberty, Cassandra will teach you the very basics of improvised and free-form quilting. Bring a pre-loved half metre length of fabric with you – this could be an old dress, tablecloth or treasured scrap of fabric – which can be incorporated into your design to give your quilt a very personal touch. All other materials will be provided.
Charleston was home to Vanessa Bell, sister of Virgiania Woolf, and her famous friends. Set in the most beautiful, unspoilt English countryside just by the South Downs, it is a wonderful place to visit in its own right. The course runs from 10am - 5pm and the course fee of £95 includes all materials and an artisan lunch. Click here for more course details.Click here to see more on Cassandra Ellis.
