Janet Bolton Workshop * 11 June 2010 * Quilt Museum, York

I have been a secret fan of Janet Bolton's for such a long time now - there are so many dimensions to her small works of found and recycled art. They are something a beginning hand can comfortably accomplish with delight. For those within reach of Yorkshire, there is a lovely workshop with her coming up on 11 June 2010 at the Quilt Museum in York. The charge for the workshop which runs from 10.00 to 16.00 is just £20 and also includes admission to the quilt gallery. You just need to bring along a few simple materials. Click here for more information.

West Dean College in West Sussex, UK, is also hosting workshops by Janet Bolton. There is a three day workshop 12-15 April 2010 concentrating upon composing and making pictures with fabrics and found objects and again on 25 - 27 June. On 25 June there is also a taster day to explore making pictures with fabrics.

For those of you who live too far away Janet has published many books which come with very comprehensive instructions.
