Weekly and monthly courses at

Textile Inspirations
A weekly class that takes place each Tuesday from 10am - 4pm

This is an exciting class where students are encouraged to develop their
own designs which are then interpreted through many different techniques.
There are always opportunities for dyeing fabrics using a variety of different methods
including Procion, indigo and potassium permanganate dyes, screen printing,
discharge, resists etc. These fabrics are then used to interpret individual
designs all of which are then on display in our end of year exhibition.
During the last few years we have also made gorgeous dolls, handmade books,
worked on a very successful group project and made journal quilts.

Journal Days
(9 classes)
This class takes place on the last Wednesday of each month from 10am - 4pm
        
During the course you will be encouraged to develop your own ideas through various
design exercises and different techniques to include dyeing and printing and
experimenting with stitch and embellishment. It is then your choice whether you make
a collection of small journal quilts or develop your ideas to produce a larger piece.

Block a Month
(9 classes)
A monthly class that takes place on the first Friday of each month from 10am - 3pm

This class started about 20 years ago when students came to make a patchwork
quilt from a quilt designed by me. Each year I would introduce a new quilt design which
would be interpreted using different fabric palettes. Many years later this is still one of
my most successful courses but nowadays students are keen to develop their own
ideas with guidance and encouragement from me.
