We try to hold one Shop Open Day per month, generally featuring the treasures we've brought back from our most recent travels in Africa.
Occasional workshops at The African Fabric Shop
With Magie Relph, Isobel Holland and guest tutors
From time to time we offer workshops at our shop in Meltham, West Yorkshire. Many of you already know Magie, but let us introduce you to Isobel Holland.
Isobel never ceases to amaze with her creative energy and outputs. From textile art and quilting to her innovative jewellery designs, she's always coming up with something new and exciting. Isobel designs all of our jewellery kits and teaches our occasional jewellery workshops.
Occasionally we invite guest tutors as well, among them award winning quilter, acclaimed teacher and a great fan of African fabrics - Janice Gunner.
Our workshops are stimulating, friendly and - above all - fun!
