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
and The Eastern Daily Press
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.
