We run an expansive programme of pop-up workshops bringing creative practitioners into our Artspace in Bath to bring all manner of making and creating to our space.
Our pop-up workshops tend to be one-off sessions (rather than our ongoing class timetable), though we are of course happy to revisit topics by popular demand. Workshops may be seasonal or we just may have a workshop running on an interesting topic because we managed to convince a brilliant practitioner to fit something into their busy schedule with us.
Class sizes are deliberately small and our workshops are always relaxed, friendly, supportive and lots of fun.
Keep your eyes peeled for our upcoming schedule of workshops here and book early as places are limited!
You can subscribe to our mailing list for updates on upcoming workshops.

    A wonderfully festive Christmas course focused on creating one of a kind pieces made by drawing with your sewing machine, perfect to start making those cards and decorations.  The first class will be focused on learning the basics of free motion embroidery, how to transfer your own designs onto fabric and draw them in thread, as well as using appliqué to add fabric to your design. In the second class we will be making free motion embroidery textile art Christmas cards and in the third class we will be making hanging Christmas tree decorations using fabric, felt and thread drawing.

    All you need is to bring your sewing machine along with you (ensure the feed dogs can be lowered), including the instruction manual if you have one and a compatible free motion embroidery foot. We’ll provide the rest, including fabrics, thread and even some yummy festive treats!
