1 High Street,


This Summer we will explore the making of a fabric and multi-media topic using many different techniques, materials and keepsakes to make a beautiful treasure whether on a favourite flower, memory or holiday of your choice.

If you are planning to go away during the Summer, we can work around it and perhaps your destination could be your topic.

Until the Summer, collect as much as you can on your subject, whether poems, facts, pictures or holiday snaps.

Starting on the 5th August, the course lasts for 6 weeks but not all consecutive weeks. Take this chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Summer holidays and have some 'Me-Time'!

Week 1: Make the cover using vilene, transfer dye, wax beads and stitch.
Week 2: Make the double pages, colour with some of the following - tea, markal sticks, crayons, fabric paints and dyes, transfer dyes, bleach, watercolours, poster paints and swap ideas!
Week 3: Plan the pages and narrow down your preferred ideas. Cut outs, flaps, pockets etc. Shrinkles, beads, tokens and their use.
Week 4: On dyed / coloured papers, fabric, newspaper cuttings, etc, try cut out letters, hand written, caligraphy, embossed writing etc.
Week 5: Decorate with ribbon, lace, beads, buttons, shells, bottle tops, corks, dried flowers, leaves, scraps of brochures and tickets - anything!
Week 6: Make up the books and add a bookmark with tokens attached.
