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

Hi everyone, I am part of the tutor team for the HNC Contemporary Art Practice which is taught at the brand new Art school in Eastleigh College … it will be starting at the end of September and you would study for two years part time for this qualification… it is a brod based course which includes painting and drawing, textiles, sculpture, photography, film and animation and printmaking.
At the beginning of the course for the first term, you would have a go at everything with workshops in all the studios .. from then onwards you work independently for your own exhibitions using which ever medium you prefer, we have tutors in all specialities to help you… I teach printmaking and textiles predominantly ….
The hours are from 4.15 – 9.00 on mondays and wednesdays, and this course attracts an HE loan, so, unless you earn around £30,000 a year, you are not required to repay it.
Four of our graduates this year, are going onto university to study the rest of the units required for degrees/HND
We are interviewing for this coourse on Wednesday 6th September which is only next week… if you are interested then please contact me urgently, see my contact details elsewhere on this site, or Kathy Messenger on 02380911004 at college… we need a couple more people to ensure that this course runs, we have a lot of fun and there is a lot of learning too .. do join us …
Wow! … Festival of Quilts was amazing this year, it seems to have been totally refreshed somehow … we were so busy on our two stands, Susan Chapman Stitched Textiles and Granary Studio Students, that I didnt get a chance to take any photos … sorry … suffice to say, I handed out over 600 leaflets and signed up a further hundred people to our mailing lists for information about the classes I teach and organise at the Granary Studio… so now I am busy typing them into the system!
I am thrilled that I got a judges choice award for my quilt ‘The Building of New York’
Details of the latest programme of classes to be held here at the Granary Studio can be found on the website at www.granarystudio.com
Now back from the NEC, we are headlong into Hampshire Open Studios… Room 6 are presenting the Seven Deadly Sins and much more at the Granary, we have had loads of visitors already, again I have had no time to take many photos .. just the one of the seven deadly sins
We are having a couple of days off today and tomorrow but will re-open on Thursday right through until Monday afternoon.. tea and coffee will be drunk and lovely homemade cake will be consumed.. hope to see you all at the Granary sometime over the weekend, there will be members of Room 6 here to greet you and show you what we do …
Festival of Quilts is next week at the NEC in Birmingham, it runs from Thursday 10th until Sunday 13th August.. I will be there with a stand QIA24 which is next to the Granary tudio Student stand, so please do pop by and say hello …
I am also part of a European Exhibition called ‘Perception’ it is the first venue for this travelling show, presented by ArtQuiltFusion. you will find us in TG1 right at the front beyond the winning quilts … do have a look, we represent eight different European countries and our styles are very different from each other … really interesting!
