‘Precious Scraps’ textile day with Niki Chandler


Day & time
Saturday 4th March. 10.00-3.00
£65 per person
Visitor Centre of David Parr House


For those of us who love textiles, fabric has the power to trigger memory. The smallest pieces of used clothing can transport us back to a special time or event in our lives or even conjure up the presence of a loved one no longer with us. For others we just cannot bear to waste even the smallest scraps of beautiful material, threads and embellishments so we squirrel them away for that special project. 

Join Niki to discover the story that inspired this slow stitch fabric collage workshop using small found scraps of vintage silk and linen.  

Feel free to bring along your own stash of treasured fabrics and textile connections to include in the creation of your personalized textile narrative painting. Using just the most basic of running stitches this workshop is suitable for all levels of experience. 

All other materials, threads and art canvas will be provided. 

Niki is a qualified art tutor teaching adult classes locally in creative drawing, printmaking and patchwork & quilting.

Niki exhibits both her textile prints and art quilts regularly as a member of the international group , Prism Textiles and regionally with Anglia Textile Works.

The workshop will last approximately five hours. Tea, coffee, biscuits and cake are provided. Please bring a packed lunch.

Please purchase your tickets below, one ticket per person.

Numbers for the workshop are limited to 10, so book early to avoid disappointment.
