Students as the Shama Womens’ Centre in Leicester are just completing their second, successful year of soft furnishing skills. They have been working with WEA tutor, Tasneem Ali, to learn a whole range of new skills. First, they concentrated on cushion design and making. This year they have moved on to designing and making furnishings for a whole room. Student Rashida has designed and sewn a small mock up of some beautiful draped curtains and central swag – see below.
