Please fill in all required fields

This two day course begins with a walk along the tideline gathering visual information to use back in the studio.

We then explore design through mark making, picking up on the colours, textures and shapes found outside the studio.

The afternoon will be spent preparing fabrics and yarns with dyes ready for day two, which is all about transferring your ideas onto fabric and exploring basic hand stitching.

No prior knowledge is necessary and all materials will be provided. You will take home a sketchbook bursting with ideas and plenty of samples to inspire future projects.

The two day course costs £200 per person and includes all your materials, lunch and refreshments. The course runs from 10am until 4pm each day.


If your preferred dates are not available please send us an email and we will do our best to accommodate you. To buy a gift voucher for a glass course click here.

"What a wonderful morning spent at this studio. Excellent facilities, exceptionally knowledgeable on all forms of arts and crafts - we are planning to go back."

" I had the most marvellous Saturday with Sue beachcombing, drawing, printing, playing, stitching, dying and a whole host of other things. It will be an amazing way to spend a few hours, day or weekend. I only wish I could be there more often."
