About This Course

A homemade quilt is the sort of thing you can hold onto and treasure your entire life. And the process of designing and making your own quilt is detailed, rich and rewarding, not to mention therapeutic.

This course, led by highly regarded Textile Artist and Quilt Maker, Patricia Macindoe, is a step-by-step practical guide on how to make your first quilt.  Students will learn basic techniques and apply them to making a single bed-sized quilt of the traditional Rail Fence pattern, as in this example by April Lahoda.

Open to complete beginners and no sewing machine is required (although you can bring your own if you wish).

Cancellation & Refund Policy

Because of the popularity of our courses and the limited number of spaces available, we've now introduced a Cancellation & Refund Policy. The main aim of this is to make it fairer on those people who have signed up to the waiting list and to try and reduce last minute cancellations. Please familiarise yourself with this policy (below) before booking on this course. 

Non-Refundable Deposit

All of our courses and workshops require a Deposit to book your place. The cost of the Deposit may vary, but it will be stated on the online course literature or booking page. Please note that the Deposit is completely non-refundable. If you pay the full course fee at the time of booking, the Deposit portion of that fee is retained as your non-refundable deposit.

Cancellation & Course Fees Refund

If you cancel your booking 14 or more full days before the start date of your course or workshop, you will be refunded the balance of your fees. This is equivalent to your full course fees minus your non-refundable Deposit.  

If you cancel within 14 days of the start date of the course/workshop, a refund will only be issued if a replacement student can be found to take your place. 

If you decide to cancel your place once the course has started, a refund is not guaranteed. In this situation we shall review the circumstances of the cancellation before deciding on appropriate solution.
