Butterfly Sampler by one of our students

We love to see students work when they have finished it after being on one of  our workshops. Especially when its from our first workshop to take place alongside a touring exhibition. Val Martin recently emailed us with feedback on our recent taster workshop and a photo of her finished Butterfly sampler.

”After a very inspirational workshop with Bridget, I sat down and completed my butterfly and added a few more items and wording. I hope you like it. Thank you again”

Thank you Val for sharing your work with us, we think it looks splendid!

Taster Workshops

In all our workshops you will work on a uniquely designed sampler (created by designer Bridget Guest) Rather than simply testing rows of stitches out. You get a unique piece of art to hang on your wall or transform into something else (like a cushion or a bag)

“An extraordinary history starting in the Lake District in 1652, founding banks, chocolate companies, building railways, establishing Pennsylvania, chatting with Russian Czars and Turkish Sultans.”

Who would have thought Quakers would be so interesting!
