Beginners' Patchwork - Afternoons


If you have ever fancied learning how patchwork is put together, there is a chance to do so this autumn. Effie Galletly is offering afternoon and evening workshops in Ness on the Isle of Lewis to get you started. 

Effie’s landscape work is rather complex. However the working methods she uses are the same as traditional patchwork, and she is offering to get you started with these same basics. She loves traditional patchwork, quilts and quilt making and is looking forward to letting you in on a few tricks of the trade.

There is a whole history of traditional patchwork which is fun to explore and a fund of information to discover. There are endless permutations of patterns to be made. The sky is the limit. 

This course of six weeks will deal with the basic making and some of the simpler traditional designs. The aim is to get you started and inspire you to move forward with your own ideas if you want to. Most of all it should be fun.
