h.art workshop

On Friday I ran my first proper workshop as part of the h.art programme at the Courtyard. h.art is run across Hereford each year with artists exhibiting work all over the county and holding open studios or running workshops, which is what I was asked to do. I only had an hour and as quilting is a very s-l-o-w endeavour I needed a small, portable, quick and addictive subject.

The answer of course was paper piecing! Those little fabric hexagons are truly addictive - just ask nbnq. I was a bag full of nerves before I started but once we got going people seemed to enjoy the session. Everyone took away a little bag of paper templates and the start of a quilt top, or a cushion for those with less patience....

It was a good experience and I have even had an enquiry about running another set of workshops! All very exciting and scary in equal measures. I have a few secret projects on the go at the moment that are taking up quite a bit of my time. I'd would love to tell you all about but I need to wait a little bit longer until they are all confirmed and I can reveal all. But I have managed to get round to sorting out a proper blog for my stitch and bitch group Craft Cwtch. Go and check it out, and more importantly if you are in Hereford and fancy a stitch-y evening come and join us on 2nd October.
