  • keeping track of rounds
  • Using increases and decreases to shape
  • Following a schematic

  • Front post and back post stitches

    • Discussion about using different materials/fibres
    • Tackle any questions/queries  that have arisen over past weeks

    Tutor : Marianne Horton of Beautiful Fierce 

    Marianne has a genuine passion for teaching and creating beautiful objects with simple tools and beautiful fibres. 

    "Making things is one of my ways to tell a story - by shaping the material at hand, I am able to give voice to the tales of everyday life. Sometimes,those materials have their own words to add and so the story can often have a twist or an ending that surprises even the author."
