Course Details

As a City and Guilds accredited course, this knitting course has been designed to help develop individual creativity. Whether you’re looking to lean the basics or develop existing skills, this course will allow you to express yourself, experiment and really push the boundaries of your own creativity. 

Course Modules

There are around 100-150 hours of course content split across 4 modules. Here’s what you’ll learn:

Delivery & Assessment

The course is supplied as a distance learning course where course materials and tutor assessments are delivered digitally and work is returned to your tutor via digital presentation.

 

Your coursework will be reviewed by your tutor and periodically by an Internal Quality Assessor, to ensure the appropriate quality standard is maintained. You will be provided with written feedback in a timely fashion (usually within 10 days) and, if needed, you will be able to re-submit altered work. You can contact your tutor at any time to request your work to date be reviewed and suggestions for future progress be made.

Course Timescales

There is around 100-150 hours of course content/materials and it is usual for students to take between 6-8 weeks to complete each module. Students can take up to 1 year to complete the course, which allows students to work at their own pace. However, it is up to the individual student how quickly they wish to return work to their tutor for assessment.

 

A six-month contingency is available, if needed, to cover unforeseen issues such as illness, upon production of supporting documentation, which would therefore extend the course life to 18 months (1.5 years). The maximum for this extra contingency time is once during the course lifetime.

Aimed At

Our Skill Stage 2 accredited courses are aimed at beginners. If you’ve only ever made a few projects by following patterns or perhaps you’ve only just found an interest in your new hobby, then we’d recommend that you study a Skill Stage 2 course. Courses at this level have been carefully designed to not only teach new techniques, but also introduce students to conducting research into artists or designers, and eventually learn how to create their own designs.

 

If you feel confident in your craft but rarely read around your subject or have limited experience of attending courses or exhibitions then a Skills Stage 2 course is probably going to be your best bet.

 

A Skills Stage 2 course will introduce you to the pleasures of immersing yourself in your chosen craft. Not only does this help you to develop your own style but it’s also an important way of discovering new trends and exploring favourite artists.

"For me, being pushed to create experimental samples was the most helpful part of the course. We’d have to use the new stitches I had researched and practised on the course."

Laura Collinson - Hand Knitting

"My favourite parts of the 4 modules was learning new simple and complex stitches. I loved the variety of design challenges and completing my first designed wearable item. My tutor’s feedback was invaluable. It encouraged me to experiment and motivated me to keep on track with the modules.."
