Textile Courses

Studio 11


The studio has bounced back after Covid and I have ideas for new courses in the studio and online – look out for these as I add them to the website. I now have 6 benches back in the studio so can run a full exciting programme of workshops for anyone who wants to do creative things with fabric and thread!

I am continuing with my main programme of Day-A-Month classes but am taking a slightly different approach for Wet ‘n’ Wild – the complete introduction to dyeing and printing fabric. In order to help those who don’t live close enough to come to a monthly class, I am offering this course as a week long intensive course, split over 2 weeks which you can do separately, or together. One week will be dye based, and the other week will be mixed media.

As we have all become used to working online as part of this pandemic, I am continuing to offer online courses because that will enable the studio community to grow beyond the geographical limitations of the local area. This is the new normal! These appear under a separate Online Course Main heading

You can sign up for any of the classes via the website and pay via Paypal – which also includes the option of paying by card so you don’t have to have a Paypal account to pay. Click on the Add to Cart button beside the course you wish to book and this will take you to a Checkout page. After the Paypal payment process is complete, you will be returned to the Home Page.
The small print of the booking details are at the bottom of the page – please read before paying!
If you would like to be notified of courses and opportunities, please sign up to my e mail list. They also appear on the Studio FB page and Instagram account.

There are a few short courses with visiting tutors on the Re-Treats page: click here for Re-Treats. I am also offering a mentoring programme – details below. Please use the Contact Form as a first step.

Thanks – Christine

A flexible one off or repeatable programme of 2 day packages, for those textile artists who wish to take a more professional approach to their work. Through review and discussion, I will help you take a fresh look at your work and practices, and create a personalised pathway to help you reach your goals.  If you are interested in joining this programme please use the form on the Contact Page 
I am also offering mentoring for groups with a focus on narrative within projects and have a few topics that can be used to enable work in this area. This has an online focus so is not confined to groups who are local to the South East. Once again, please contact me if your group would be interested in discussing this option.

DEPOSITS A deposit is required to secure your place on any of the studio based Once-A-Month courses shown above. Courses can be cancelled any time up to 2 weeks before the class starts, and the deposit will be refunded. After this point, the deposit will not be returned if you have to cancel your place. The deposit paid of £55 is in addition to the monthly fee of £50 and reserves your place on the course.
Once you have booked your place on a Once-A-Month course and paid a deposit to secure your place, you pay for each class as you attend in order to spread the cost over the full term. In return, you are committing to paying for the whole set of classes. If you can not make one of the sessions, alternatives dates for attendance will be offered so you are able to catch up with what you have missed. 

Payment for the online option is a one-off payment, non refundable once the course has started. Refunds will be given up to 2 weeks in advance of the course start date, with the exception of courses that start immediately on payment and has no schedule of Zoom tutorials and tutor contact. For these courses, there are no refunds. If you have problems that mean you can not keep up with the schedule of videos, please contact me for help extending access to the course materials.

The payment for short intensive classes is due in full when booking. For Once A Month classes, payments are made at each session. It can be paid with debit/credit card on the day, or by BACS transfer.

  1. Still glowing after an excellent weekend learning to dye fabrics. I was completely new to this work (or should I say play) and a bit apprehensive, but it was a delightful experience. Christine is utterly skilled and knowledgeable, both as an artist and as a teacher. The atmosphere was relaxed, the studio full of light (and tea and biscuits) and my fellow participants a pleasure to get to know. So much more than I had dared to dream. Thank you! kathleen

  2. Attended first of Wild About Colour weekends. It was really good and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was informative and Christine was so patient and helpful. I’m looking forward to the next one.

  3. Thanks Brenda. It is lovely to know how much you enjoyed the course. I really liked seeing how you all developed really individual responses to the techniques being demonstrated!

  4. I have just completed the four day course in Goldwork and have to say found it truly amazing. Christine encouraged us to experiment with the threads, before we laid a stitch, so we would have an idea of their individual properties. Once we started to stitch there was no stopping us. Four days passes so quickly, particularly when one has such an excellent tutor as Christine. I had such a great time learning this technique and will carry on and develop my ideas further.
