POSTPONED Atarashii - Japanese Folded and Quilted Patchwork - Workshop With Janice Gunner

This event takes place on 15th May 2020 from 10:00am to 4:00pm and will take place at Don Carmen Hall Ditton Community Centre Kilnbarn Road Ditton Aylesford Kent ME206AH. It is a Guild event being organised by Brenda Masters, .


The Japanese term Atarashii Patchwork translates as 'new patchwork'. Devised by Japanese quilter Sashiyo Muraki, it was first published in Japanese book of techniques in 1984. It is a deceptively simple technique which makes up into delightful little quilt-as-you-go units that can be turned into a variety of items such as bags, boxes, table mats and wall hangings. This hand stitching workshop will introduce you to the technique and give ideas and inspiration for other projects.

Janice can supply kits for this which includes everything needed, including Vintage Japanese fabric, except sewing equipment. The cost of each kit (including written instructions) is £15.00 each on the day.  Please let me know if you wish to purchase a kit.
