About the Foundation programme

Our Foundation Creative Studies – Knitting programme is a 120-hour, year long supported self-study programme you can complete in your own time.

The Foundation programme is accredited by City & Guilds as an affiliate centre of Artybird Carnforth.

Debbie will be teaching this exciting new programme which will be available to study via distance learning so you can learn from the comfort of your own home at a time and pace to suit you. There’s no pressure and Debbie will be there to assist and guide you throughout your learning journey.

The Foundation programme is ideal for anyone who wishes to study their craft area in depth, which could be for personal interest or for professional development. You may have attended a number of workshops, or done an introductory programme and are now ready to progress, integrating design alongside good craft skills to develop as a designer-maker or pattern designer.

For those students who would like to gain formal accreditation, the Foundation programme also offers you the opportunity to submit your work for accreditation for a professional qualification through City & Guilds.
