Make this lovely table runner on a one day workshop in a fabric theme of your choosing, at the same time learning the ‘Bargello’ method of piecing and moving.

Once you have mastered ‘Bargello’ you can then go on to experiment and create many different patterns and products.

The finished size of the table runner is 19” x 54”.

This workshop requires some preparation of fabrics in advance

In advance of this workshop please complete the following :

  • Make a note or on offcuts of each fabric label each different one with a number from 1 to 10, 10 being the darkest and 1 being the lightest
  • From each fabric cut 3 x 2 ½” strips
