  2. I have just been on Debbie Lyddon’s Sculptural Cloth workshop and have had an inspiring and wonderful time, Studio 11 is a great space to work in, light and airy and very well equipped with plenty of room to spread out and work. This is the second re-treat workshop I have been on (the first with Alice Fox) and throughly enjoyed both times. I would definitely recommend coming down to Studio 11 Eastbourne, many thanks Christine.

  3. Hi, I have just completed a workshop at Studio11, led by Matthew Harris. An inspiring three days that was both challenging and rewarding. This was my first visit to Studio11 and I loved it. A well organised, well equipped, light and airy studio where everyone is friendly.
    I have signed up for monthly creative development days from September. I too stayed at Ravillious Guesthouse, a 10 minute walk from the studio, excellent breakfasts with every comfort in the room.
    All in all, a brilliant time!!
    Thank you Christine and fellow students.

  4. I have just finished a 5 day course with Matthew Harris at Studio 11 and can’t praise the experience highly enough. Matthew’s teaching was exceptional and I left with lots of inspiration and ideas for the future. The studio is also a great place for such events, with all the facilities you could wish for.

    Would definitely recommend a trip to Eastbourne for one of Christine’s classes or for a retreat.

  5. I have just completed the workshops with Alice Fox at Studio 11 and had a wonderful time. The studio is a lovely light sunny well equipped room to work in and lunches were delicious! Great teaching and I came away full of inspiration for new projects.
    I stayed at the Ravillious Guesthouse which was very comfortable and within easy walking distance of the studio.

    Thank you very much Christine.

  6. Hi
    Went to your lovely exhibition at the Birley Centre today. I am interested in your creative development days. I am an experienced textile ‘person’ and am looking to do something a little different from what I have been doing.

    Thanks so much.
    I was really inspired by the exhibition.

  7. Hi, I am on Tuesday afternoon portrait class with Roz and I love it. I have attended many classes over the years but this is the most structured and just what I have been looking for. I am also keen to learn the basics of watercolour painting, although I can paint with watercolour I| have never been taught so struggle with the technique. Before I commit to elsewhere, do you have any courses in the pipeline?

    I am an experienced beginner !

    Kind regards
