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, 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 felt making course is aimed at complete 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 have already undertaken a few of the craft basics in this area, 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.

Hear from our recent graduates

Knitted work from our graduate

"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.."

Susan Rorison - Hand Knitting

Studetn Feedback from Patricia McCarthy

"Having completed my two years, I think the most useful learning tool was the development of a structured approach to design. I learnt how to go from an idea in my head to a completed design and all the steps in between."
