2 Day Course – 20th & 21st January
From the essential, protective layer of defensive padded jacks in the fourteenth century, quilting developed to shape the fashionable doublets of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. By the eighteenth century quilting was popular for the decorative but still practical garments such as jackets, jumps and petticoats.
There will be original pieces to study, and students will work samples of the varied techniques used through the centuries.
