In. 'normal' times, I run face-to-face classes in two community venues in Essex, near Chelmsford (daytime) and near Brentwood (evenings):
Monthly daytime classes, Mondays 10.30-13.30, scheduled as rolling 3-month courses (3 x 3 hours per course), max 10-12 people. Currently, I teach three Mondays each month, so there are 3 courses running concurrently.
Weekly evening classes, Mondays, 19.30-21.30, scheduled as rolling 6-week courses (6 x 2 hours per course), max 10-12 people.
The content of the face-to-face classes is flexible but is broadly the same at both venues being driven by a 'wishlist' of topics/techniques/projects that learners wish to cover, plus my ideas and suggestions. Whilst patchwork and quilting is the focus, I am happy to venture into general sewing/soft furnishing/dressmaking/mixed media techniques etc where a particular project requires it. Beginners welcome as are those who wish to work on their own projects with guidance from me.
These classes moved to Zoom in Q2 2020 for existing learners only who wished to continue meeting and learning and were happy to transition to an online format. The Zoom classes are also held on Mondays, 10.30-11.30 and 19.30-21.30. The content and delivery has changed to small projects and sewing techniques supported, in addition to the class handouts, by 'how-to videos that can be accessed offline between classes.
It is hoped to return to face-to-face classes later in 2021. Please use the 'contact me' page to enquire about classes and availability of places. I am always happy to consider adding another class if there is sufficient interest and the new class is viable.
Ad-Hoc Workshops for Groups
I am happy to receive enquiries from patchwork & quilting groups about face-to-face and Zoom workshops. Please use the 'contact me' page to get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Whilst I'm happy to run workshops for groups, I do not give talks to groups.
