Lecturer: Sera Waters

Fri 24 Feb – Fri 17 Mar  10.00am – 12.30pm (Please note: this is a 4 week course)

Level – Intermediate to Advanced

This course will give participants the opportunity to develop their needlework skills in a supportive and friendly environment. Participants will work independently with guidance from Sera Waters. The emphasis will be on developing participants’ own individual projects and ideas, whilst improving and expanding knowledge and techniques.
Open Studio – Needlework is intended for those who may struggle with the isolation of working on their own, and for those wanting to get some direction with their projects, as well as for those who simply wish to advance their needlework skills. It is a valuable chance for like-minded participants to learn from, support and encourage each other, under the direction of an experienced textile artist.
