New Contemporary Design & Craft Course for Post Graduates! May 2020
This is a follow-on class for those who have completed a City & Guilds course and want to develop their ideas further in a group setting. It is an advanced level course for experienced stitchers who enjoy the design aspect of creating original pieces and exploring innovative styles of quilt-making.
There is no set programme, the course is flexible and based on the topics students wish to explore. People can work on their own projects or join forces as a group to try an idea or particular technique.
We can discuss as a class what everyone wants to do at the beginning of term and draw up a programme based on requests.
There are lots of examples of inspiring pieces of work City & Guilds students have made in recent years under ‘Galleries’on the Homepage.
Students will need to provide their own materials and bring a sewing machine, (though I have some available to borrow). Some materials for specific techniques we can order in bulk as a group.
Students are supported with handouts on the various techniques and I have a library of over 300 books available to borrow. Irons and ironing boards are provided and I also keep a well stocked cupboard of essential items for students to borrow, including rotary cutting equipment so if you forget something it’s not the end of the world! I also have facilities to do ‘wet’ techniques like dyeing, painting and sun-printing (in the summer)! A large pin-wall for designing and a table-tennis table – perfect for layering up big quilts!
This course will be held in my new studio which has off-street parking and level access. People will need to bring their own lunch, but tea, coffee and biscuits are provided, and a microwave is available for warming food.
