Our first day live 'in the office'!

It’s been a long time coming but we’re finally up and running for visitors.

It was lovely to welcome my City & Guilds Foundation programme students for a designing study day at my studio at A4 studios and AIR Gallery in Altrincham.

As not everyone could be there in person we were joined online as well as in person and (after a few tech hiccups) we got the IT working and had a really productive day.

As the students are moving towards their final projects we were looking at how to take the journey from an initial image through refining and resolving, researching ideas, stitches and techniques and sampling.

There were some excellent results and lots of progress made.

One of the advantages of small groups is the flexibility to put a bit of in person alongside the distance learning so that those who want to can also get together. Being able to bring others in by zoom means no-one needs to feel excluded.

I’m really looking forward to seeing how the student samples develop – if today was anything to go by they will be awesome!

If you’re interested in our City & Guilds accredited programmes you can find out more and sign up here. I’m always happy to chat as well if you have any questions about whether it’s the right course for you.

I can also run bespoke programmes for groups and organisations so do get in touch if you have a cohort that might like to study a City & Guilds programme with us.

(And if you’re looking for shorter courses on knitting, crochet, felting, hand-dyeing, indigo dyeing and more, do check out Debbie’s other workshops at DT Craft & Design).
