Community Wellbeing: Applique and Machine Embroidery

Course overview

This is a creative, practical, and relaxed applique course where you can spend some quality time learning new skills making beautiful unique applique items. Applique is the art of applying one decorative fabric image to another to create a design that can be applied to many items such as a book cover, PE bag, cushion cover or a special keepsake or a personalised present.

Under the guidance of our experienced tutor, you will learn tips and tricks to design and make individual projects using a sewing machine, so you can have a finished and successful item to take away and be proud of.

Our Community Wellbeing programme has been designed to include courses that will develop your skills, confidence and promoting a sense of wellbeing. Each workshop will be delivered at a gentle pace with lots of tutor support and is suitable for beginners and more experienced creatives.
