Create your own fabric landscape at this weekend retreat with Kate Findlay

Date: 22 – 23 May 2021
Denham Grove Hotel, Denham, Bucks

Wild Gardens with Kate Findlay

Your inspiration will be gardens, and the wonderful haphazard effect of herbaceous borders in bloom. Kate will guide you through a range of processes including block printing, stencil cutting, sponging and other mark making to build up a rich background. On top of this, you will then add raw-edge fabric pieces cut into flower and leaf shapes to really bring your wild garden picture to life, finishing with free motion embroidery and embellishment by hand.

Finish a quilt or learn a new technique with Valerie Nesbitt


As a special treat for all you quilters who also want a weekend away, Valerie is joining the retreat and invites you to bring along your UFO’s, WIP’s and PhD’s or be inspired by a project of hers.
