'Stitching With Liz & Helen' is a collaboration between two Royal School of Needlework tutors, Liz Tapper & Helen Jones (www.stitchwork.co.uk), to bring the art of needlework to Exeter. We aim to provide classes in a range of techniques and for varying skill levels.

Please do get in touch if there's a particular course you would like to see listed.

Learn how to construct a small fabric covered box. This is an excellent start

for leading onto more complex box designs.

This class will cover the basics of fabric covered box making, from first drawing out your box pieces onto card, cutting them out and covering them, having chosen from a range of pretty fabrics available on the day, before then assembling your box. This is an excellent start to enable you to construct further boxes in the future. If you have previously attended the Goldwork class, this design can be used to decorate your box.


The kit costs £25 and is available to purchase from your tutor on the day.

Please bring a pencil, fabric scissors and a sharp craft knife if you have one.

There will be some to borrow in the class if needed.

There will be an hour’s break for lunch at 1pm. Coffee, tea and biscuits are included in the class price. There are shops nearby for lunch, but it may be easier to bring a packed lunch.

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn a fun technique, combined with a decorative element, in the relaxing environment of Exeter Community Centre, situated in the lovely city of Exeter.
