What Our Graduates Say


 I have truly re-ignited my passion for textiles and feel far more confident with a new set of skills under my belt.

‘I learned more than embroidery’

 ‘I began to learn to design my own samples. Trying new techniques, which pushed out of my comfort zone, showed me future possibilities I could incorporate into my own work.’

‘I now create my own designs’

‘For me, being pushed to create experimental samples was the most helpful part of the course.’
