The English Cottage - Wisteria Panel with Catherine Howell from Victoria

2 or 4 or 6 day workshop, Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd July, Monday 3rd & Tuesday 4th July, Thursday and Friday 6th & 7th July

This beautifully hand painted cleverly designed project encapsulates all that Catherine Howell is known for. Her love of whimsical hedgerow creatures surrounded by English garden flowers on a quintessential thatched country cottage. It proudly stands 33cm high, the front and back of the cottage measures 30cm and is 22cm depth.

The surprise within, as you open up the roof and drop down the cottage front, reveals a needlework box with drawers designed to hold all your sewing treasures. 

A chatelaine inspired with the same signature drawings as the cottage completes this delightful design and is available to do as a workshop on Thursday and Friday.

The cottage is embellished with hundreds of tiny flowers in the beautiful boutique Australian silk ribbons and threads from Colour Streams.

The kit is very comprehensive and taking into account the cost of the entire kit this project has been broken down into sections in order for students to work to your budget.

(There will also be a continuance workshop in 2018 for students to continue)
