City and Guilds Accredited Stumpwork Course
Discover the beautiful craft of Stumpwork with our Skill Stage 2 online Stumpwork course. Throughout this in-depth distance learning course, you’ll get the chance to learn a variety of raised, padded and other Stumpwork techniques, enabling you to create pieces to a high standard while developing your individual style and creativity.
As a City and Guilds accredited course, each module will focus on learning several new skills, preparing you for final assessment. Our accredited courses are recognised for their high standards of teaching, learning and assessment.
This is a distance learning course which can be studied from anywhere in the world. You will learn by working your way through our online course materials and video content with full support from our dedicated expert tutors. Stumpwork is a highly creative and versatile craft that offers learners the chance to design, stitch and create unique pieces.
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.
Delivery and 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.
