How will I be taught?
Craft courses provide an opportunity for students to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft to a higher level. Students will also be expected to research and respond to the design aspects of craft. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques.Students will be encouraged to look at the work of other craftspeople and artists, both contemporary and historical and keep a sketchbook/ notebook to record goals/ ideas, processes and progress. It is important to note that craft courses are practical, requiring a degree of manual dexterity. Students will need to participate fully to get the most out of the course. Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.
What do I need to bring with me?
If students could bring with them for the rag-rugging any old clothes, bedding, scraps of fabric, ribbons, wool rovings, thick yarns. A piece of hessian or sacking cloth and a crochet hook. Please don’t go out and buy lots as there will be spares available on the day.
What can I do next?
