11sep10:00 am1:00 pmJapanese Folded Patchwork - Pyramid Box at Workaid


Event Details

Come and enjoy making this delightful triangular based pyramid box which can be used as a trinket, gift box or as an ornament.
A hand-stitched project using traditional techniques to make a covered box with circles of fabric wrapped around triangles of card and decoratively stitched in place.

No experience of patchwork and quilting is necessary, just basic sewing skills.

Please bring:

  • cereal packets, pencil and paper cutting scissors, Pritt stick
  • fabric – two pieces measuring 8″ x 12″
  • some very thin wadding or brushed cotton (any colour, to cover the triangles under the fabric – even odd scraps will do provided they are no smaller than 5 1/2 inches square)
  • sewing kit
  • polyester sewing thread – any colour as it will not show
  • stranded embroidery threads – in contrast to the fabric

NB – Most of these items are available in the Workaid shop.

All our workshops are run by talented tutors and include tea, coffee and biscuits. This workshop is £15. 

For more information on this workshop and to see the other classes we run check out our website or look at the tutor Mary Gamesters website.
