Tutor: Maureen Fletcher:  My hope is to pass on my experiences, to my students, having over 35 years working as an Interior designer & soft furnishing maker.

The course is very flexible, you may have some recycled clothes or an old tapestry made by Gran, a beautiful piece of fabric, or maybe a screen printed fabric you want to make into a cushion, wall hanging, pillow or bedcover, just bring it along & we will work together designing whatever you wish to make.
