City and Guilds 2012 Finished Work

City and Guilds Finished Work

Congratulations to the 18 students who completed their City and Guilds Level One Diploma in Patchwork and Quilting or Machine Embroidery with me @The Gallery Dereham.

I feel very proud of all the work they have done and textile journey they have travelled in just eight weeks. The eight weeks was a taster into different techniques, as a taster for the full City and Guilds. This Textile Diploma is worth 4 University Credits and is a lovely introduction into a full Certficate.

Every student made their textile samples and made them into a book. I feel as a tutor that making samples is important to learn techniques but by putting them into a fabric book it makes them into heirlooms and the book can be added to over the years.

See the newspaper articles in The Dereham Times

I as their Tutor have the task of assessing and marking all their wonderful work. Above you can see the students work laid out on my studio table. It is a busy time for me too as I am preparing for Norfolk Open Studios. My studio will be open from Saturday 26th of May 2012 until Sunday 10th June 2012, from 10.30-5pm.

Hope to see you at my Open Studios whether virtually or in person. I will be blogging each day of Open Studios with a video of my studio and photographs of the work produced. The opportunity for me to spend everyday for two weeks in my studio is fantastic. I love teaching but I too need to inspire and create new work.
