We have some exciting classes coming up at the Granary in May… there are three very different classes with spaces left. We specialise in small classes with expert tuition.Please refer to the courses section of this website to find out what is on offer for the rest of the year. Do keep checking back because we are adding courses regularly as we respond to requests from yourselves
14 May Know Your Sewing Machine (GS006) ….. this runs from 10.00 – 14.00 and Lynn will go through all the maintenance and functions for your own machine and lead you through some stitching which will give you all the information you need to stitch on your machine beautifully … the cost is £32.50 for this valuable class
22-23 May Graffitti Quilts (GS007) ….. this two day class begins with some drawing and design, both individual and collaborative, to create these fun quilts. the second day is spent free machine quilting, so, potentially depending on the size you choose to work to, you could complete a quilt in the two days … the cost of the two days is £90 and includes all paints and pens etc
29-30 May Print and Piece (GS008) ….. this two day class will begin with a day of printmaking through design and you will create a range of beautiful fabrics using fabric paint. The second day will concentrate on using these fabrics to piece a simple quilt top. You may choose any pattern following discussion with the tutor, from simply putting squares together to creating complex blocks or crazy patchwork. The cost of these two days is £90 and includes all paints and print media etc
we have one space left for tomorrow’s two day class, our weekend bonanza at a reduced rate because it is our first print making course at the studio and we want to make sure the studio is set up so it is user friendly! we will welcome feedback and in return you will have both resident tutors leading you through some design exercises, print making activities and finally you will stitch your results into a panel or cushion etc… if you are interested please phone 01962 777480. we will supply most everything, just bring fabrics papers etc of your choice and maybe any favourite marking tools, maybe your sewing machine…
hope to see you here
lots of students registered and we have our first full class with several having only one space, so we are off to a good start… so looking forward to seeing students using our studio
The timetable has now gone live on this site! We hope you will enjoy the range of courses we have planned for you… there may be some glitches and we will be working on it for a while yet so please bear with us, but we wanted you to get this information A.S.A.P.
Looking forward to hearing from you…
Well it is nearly here, we have what we think is an exciting variety of classes for you.
Just uploading it all onto the side which will take a few days, but it is half term from our college teaching, so hopefully it will be live by the end of next week.
However, I can announce that we will host a grand opening of the Granary Studio on Saturday 28 March at 4pm. There will be coffee, tea, cake and fizz, and an opportunity to see what we have been getting ready, so that your classes can run.
The courses will start directly after the Easter break with the Day-a-Month courses starting at the beginning of October. We have responded to the results of the questionnaire and provided a real mixture of day sessions and longer courses.
We will be running a five day summer school in mid July which we are very excited about. So do have a look at the timetable when it goes live in a few days time, we are sure there is something for everyone.
Our new programme of workshops/courses starting in April 2015 at our delightful Granary Studio in Hampshire, U.K. In the meantime please enjoy our free taster sessions which you will find on the buttons at the top of this page.
We would welcome your ideas and suggestions for future classes and would be grateful if you could fill in our questionnaire which you will also find on the buttons at the top of this page.
