Workshop Dates

The summer holidays are rapidly coming to an end so it's time to start thinking about going back to school! Because I'm working on other important projects at the moment, I'm just scheduling in a few workshops for this autumn. I hope there's something to suit you...

Art Quilt Adventures

23rd September 2015
21st October 2015

Designed for students looking to create a body of work and explore a theme, this series of workshops will encourage personal development and confidence in design. Students will be encouraged to work with sketchbooks, and drawing and painting in its broadest sense to investigate themes and ideas before working ideas through into stitched textiles, specifically art quilts. 

We’ll spend time learning how to analyse and evaluate ideas, sources of inspiration and our own work through both group critique and one-to-one chats. There will be technical instruction and guidance from me as we explore the potential of a wide variety of techniques for working on both fabric and paper. Workshop time will also be allocated for students to work independently taking advantage of the studio facilities and equipment.

You will bring work that you are currently doing as a starting point on which to build, but this need only be in the very early stages. You will be expected to work at home between sessions to keep progress moving along.

This course is not suitable for beginners to art, design and quiltmaking, but it’s perfect for anyone with some skills looking to push their work further with the support of an enthusiastic and friendly tutor in a creative and relaxed environment.

Course fees include use of studio equipment and most materials, lunch and refreshments.

This will be an opportunity to take a series of ongoing workshops as part of a mentoring programme. More dates will be added but for now you are just committing to two, think of it as a taster!

£65 per day
Update: These classes are fully booked but please email to go on the waiting list

Mixed Media Monoprint

7th October 2015

A one-day workshop exploring the potential of monoprint when used in combination with other techniques such as collage, drawing and painting. We’ll be working on paper with a variety of monoprint methods. Students will also be invited to work in sketchbooks. Monoprint is a fast and fun technique and you’ll amass a large collection of prints with time to develop them in class. I’ll also suggest lots of ideas for you to explore at home.

This class is suitable for beginners and those with more experience. 

Course fees include use of studio equipment and all materials, lunch and refreshments.

Update: This class is fully booked but please email to go on the waiting list

Classes take place in my studio near Bridgnorth, Shropshire. There are lots of options for good places to stay and to eat nearby, just let me know if you need recommendations.
