NEW PROGRAMME 2019/20
Finally I am teaching a whole year of Poetry of Decay – my mixed media course. I know people have been waiting for this to come one day a month as I usually only teach this away from home. I have so much extra to teach than I can manage in a short 3-5 day workshop …..!

A very exciting development is that I now co-own Thermofax Screens (soon to be rebranded as screens4printing) and so Studio 11 students can get their screens without needing to pay postage – just ask me for the code.
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.

POETRY OF DECAY
10.00 – 5.00
£50 per session, £55 DEPOSIT
This mixed media course will introduce you to some materials and processes that will help you to create rich and textured surfaces.
Working first on paper and then fabric, you will experiment with a variety of media including paints, inks, dyes, wax, oil pastel, puff binder, and rusting powder, combined with machine and hand stitch. You will be encouraged to use your own mark making tools creating repetitive marks whilst producing a series of small paper based studies enabling you to layer experiments quickly, creating an understanding of your materials that you can then take on to work on more considered pieces on fabric.
THIS COURSE IS NOW FULL. I will take a waiting list and put on a Monday course if there are enough takers
10.00 – 5.00
£50 per session + £55 DEPOSIT
Explore working with your machine to create texture, lines and holes.

DEPOSITS A deposit is required to confirm your place on any of the 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.
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 as cash or by 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, you pay for each class as you attend in order to spread the cost over the full year. In return, you are committing to paying for the whole year 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. The deposit of £55 will reduce each of your monthly payments by £5, so you will only pay £45 for each session.
