NEW PROGRAMME 2020/21
Covid 19 has resulted in a reduced programme for this academic year but the continued rollout of the vaccine should help us get back to face to face classes with some enthusiasm!
The new venue is cozy and would normally support 5 full size print benches with either 5 creative intent students, or 8 creative development students sharing benches. Various specialist classes would share 2 to a bench (stitch classes), or have a bench to themselves (Print/Dye classes).
In light of social distancing, the number of benches and students is limited to 4, and I am not running any specialist courses until September 2021. There are also plenty of features I have introduced to keep us all safe whilst working together.
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 the Once-A-Month Creative Development class on the website and pay for your first class via Paypal. 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.

ONLINE CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT
FRIDAY ZOOM MEETINGS 10.30
£90 (full fee for May to July)
If you would prefer to receive guidance at home, along with peer support from the community, this online option will give you 2 Zoom meetings a month and a FaceBook group in which to ask questions and share work. You will need to be reasonably self motivated to work either in stitch or wet work, but if you need specific tuition, one Zoom meeting could be organised as a demonstration.
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.
If you are interested in any of the studio courses, or have questions, please use the e mail form on the Contact Page.
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.
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.
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.
