The course covers over eighty techniques, two projects and the process of dyeing and decorating fabric. The work was outstanding so congratulations!

Textile Tuesday @The Art Room Dereham

Textile Classes have been going really well especially with the changes in venue since the beginning of the year. The Art Room Dereham has proved itself to be an ideal venue for art and textiles. City and Guilds continue and you can see in the photograph above there are some exciting artwork and samples being made. If any one is wanting to do a Creative Textile Class or City and Guilds and live in Norfolk please contact me.

To see more inspiration and of what is being created by myself and students visit my daily blog HERE

Textile Thursdays will be in The Cancer Care Centre from March and it is a lovely venue in the centre of Dereham, on Georges Road. Sessions are as normal 10am until 12.15 and 12.30 until 2.45. Look forward to sharing with you shortly.

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.
