Patchwork and Quilt a Throw

If you’ve ever wanted to make a beautiful patchwork throw, but put off by the geometric designs, maths involved and all the expensive tools and templates needed, then this course is for you. No measuring, no expensive tools just a stunning quilt to show using a back to basics method.
You will make a patchwork quilt approximately the size of a single fleece blanket which can be used for snuggling up on the sofa or as a warm layer on a bed. You can hand embroider, or stitch buttons onto it as embellishment. There are no rules!
You could even use recycled materials like outgrown men’s shirts, cotton dresses or coloured cotton duvet covers.
Suitable for those who enjoy stitching, crafts and making things by hand.

What will I learn?

"Having progressed from a Level 3 course in Games and Interactive Media at South Devon College, I knew that there were excellent facilities and levels of support. The fact that UCSD is local also meant I would save money by staying at home, which was really beneficial. The support of the tutors has helped me transition into university-level study, which has been very positive. I contributed to an employment and research scholarship, where we secured an Oculus Rift display, which I'll be using to simulate and test some of the 3D spaces I've created. When I complete my studies at UCSD I will go on to complete a top-up year, before entering employment. At the moment I'm planning on working as either a graphic designer or in 3D modelling using the skills I've learnt during my studies."Jack Gladman
