As well as the longer courses that I teach at the Granary Studio, I am now offering some short, dayschools. In response to requests from my followers, I have titled the series Dayschool Fridays., which just means that they all occur on Fridays, you can book onto just one, or you can book them all, no problem!
If you would like to see something else offered, please do let me know, then I can either teach it, or get a tutor who can. Hope there is something you can find to do in this list.
I am still getting all the information pages together, but I wanted to tell you about this venture before the festival of quilts so you get a chance to book onto your choice of days.. when the course code is blue, click on it and you will go to the information sheet, I am still workingon any that are not so please come back later

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, mine was different this year, I went to my daughter’s house, she has a new baby and my son in law was cooking so we all converged in Uttoxeter … wonderful to hand over the cooking …
and so, now my mind turns to the new year … what will 2018 bring ….
I have just posted some new classes on my granary website .. do visit .. hopefully there wil be some classes that interest you www.granarystudio.com
I am running a drawing course at Eastleigh college which finishes at the end of this term and working a little with theyoung students too, but I am cuting back on hours there … don’t forget the HNC Contemporary Art Practice, I will teach on that if it runs.. we still have the names from last year so hopefully it will … if not, then my time at Eastleigh College may draw to a close after 15 years!
the Granary Studio goes from strength to strength so I will not be at a loose end…
I hope to see you there or at the shows, I will be at ICHF shows in Glasgow and Birmingham, back to back in March.. and at Festival of Quilts in Birmingham in August, Hampshire Open Studios in Granary Studios in August too, then finally the Autumn Knitting and Stitching shows, probably at all three .
A very Happy and Healthy New year to you all
