Event details

Enjoy a peaceful morning with a small group of fellow stitcher crafters and learn to look at your textile scraps differently in these low-pressure scrapcrafting sessions. You’ll enjoy an inspirational collection of remnant materials from Anna’s 'scraps buffet' - textiles, papers, haberdashery, fibres, wire, lace... reclaimed, vintage, luxe, surprising... always beautiful and always interesting.

Follow your host Anna’s demonstrations and simple steered tutorials to make textile leaf sprays (with sew or no-sew options) and/or handstitched leaf hanging decorations or artwork.

Craft or sewing experience is not essential but very welcome. Whether you've never put thread to needle, or are a skilled crafter already, this is a no-rules creativity that focuses as much on the process and experience as the results.

What to bring: 

Includes all materials, guidance & tuition, complimentary day entry to the arboretum, tea/coffee & cake. Own pre-prepared light snacks, water bottles and/or other drinks are welcome.

Participants often bring their own small sewing kit and scissors ('not special' or kitchen type scissors will be used in this project as well as fabric scissors/thread snips. Alternatively, shared tools will be available to use on the day.
