Hand embroidery work by Beth Rhodes

“I would recommend any course at the School of Stitched Textiles, especially if you’re interested in gaining a new creative skill or developing existing skills. The courses cover a range of textile skill levels and take you on a creative journey that can really lead you anywhere you want to be as an artist.


Personally I don’t think I would be where I am today without studying this course as it pushed me out of my comfort zone to discover my own style as an artist and gave me the confidence to put my own artwork out there.”

(Skill Stage 2 and 3)

“I would definitely recommend the courses to others. Both courses have shown me that with the right guidance and support (from my family and the school), I can actually do it. And thanks to The School of Stitched Textiles, I’ve achieved more than I ever believed possible.

 

I now have my own business selling fabric as well as my own products, like gifts and home décor. “

What Our Graduates Say

‘Invaluable’

 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.’
