Through the Garden Gate Textile Workshop

Saturday 20 July at 10:00 am


Spend a relaxing day in St Peter and St Paul’s Church at East Harling. Learn to make a textile picture, using simple techniques and explore your own unique creativity. You will be given complete instruction by Sharon as well as written instructions and ideas sheets. All materials are provided.

Making textile pictures is a delight and hopefully you will come away from this workshop, full of inspiration.

No previous experience is necessary other than maybe the most basic sewing skills.

Sharon Blackman is a textile artist from Chelmsford and has been making textile pictures from recycled fabrics for about 25 years. She has a quirky, folk art style and particularly loves to make pictures inspired by gardens, cottages, the seaside and the beautiful, simple everyday pleasures of life. She sells her original pictures and cards all over the world and has a large online following. She loves to inspire others to make textile pictures and to receive the same joy and peace that this technique has given to her.

Hot and cold drinks will be provided throughout the day. You will need to bring your own packed lunch or take a walk and buy something at our local shops.
