Heritage Needlecraft Workshop: Durham Hand Quilting

6 h
About this activity

This workshop introduces the rich heritage of the quilts designed and made in the mining villages of northern England. Discover the history and people behind these ‘whole cloth’ quilts and learn about the Weardale chain, feather cable, lovers knot, rose templates and other designs inspired by nature. Then use old pennies to design and create your own, unique hand-quilted cushion cover.

Taught by textile artist Helen Barnes.
