Independent Study is designed for those that have completed the Printed Textiles course and feel ready to work on their own projects. A chance to revisit your favourite techniques and develop your own complex cloths, while leaving behind those that you don’t fit with your own practise. Susan, from time to time will introduce some techniques that couldn’t be included in printed textiles. She will help and mentor your chosen projects, and assist you to develop a body of your own work.

Dates, please take careful note 

Dates for 2023/2024, mainly the first Sunday in the month from 10.00am until 4.00pm, as follows

10 sep, 8 oct, 5 nov, 3 dec, 4 feb, 10 mar, 14 apr, 5 may, 9 jun, 7 july


Printed Textiles fee is £500. You should pay in 3 instalments, firstly £200 as a deposit before the course starts and will secure your place, secondly £200 paid before the February session, and thirdly the final payment of £100 to be paid before the May session.


You will choose your own projects with help and mentoring from Susan. She will still teach some new ideas but you can use the time as you wish. If you want anything specifically prepared before the class then please email Susan beforehand so she can get resources, or equipment ready for you. These sessions are not limited to working with dyes. You may choose to use all your samples from Printed Textiles to progress on just one body of work. You can dedicate the session to design or stitching if you wish. Or you may still want to use the opportunity to work in a wet space, rather than work at home!


The studio is well stocked with resources which are available for your use. You should bring your own lunch as there is no shop in the village, but tea, coffee and biscuits are available throughout the day.

For the first session you should bring your ideas, your fabrics and any other resources that might be appropriate to your plans.
