After a hugely popular embroidery workshop earlier this year, artist and craft-person- extraordinaire, Becki Harper, will be back in the Gallery to teach you the many ways to make your own bunting!

Add colour and fun to any room in this new 50's inspired Burton Saturday workshop...

Think any colours, any size, any fabric; this will be an informative and relaxing workshop suitable for all abilities. Grab the opportunity to use those embroidery skills again too and decorate your bunting once you've grasped the basics.

All materials will be provided, but feel free to bring anything special that you may want to use.

Suitable for ages 12+

This is a free workshop but please remember that spaces are limited so booking is a must! A refundable booking fee of £5 will be taken upon booking. This will be returned to you on arrival at the workshop. Cancellations within 48 hours of the event will not be eligible for a refund.
