2021 - this course is for continuing students only (those who have previously enrolled in 2019 and 2020)
This course is for people with experience in stitch who wish to extend their knowledge of design and technique and develop their ability to create more contemporary work. They will be able to complete one or more individual modules or, in order to be awarded the graded Certificate in Contemporary Stitch and Design, complete the two Core Modules and two of the Elective Modules on the programme.
The two Core Modules are: Colour & Design and Surface Stitching. They are mandatory for those wishing to receive a Graded Certificate in Contemporary Stitch and Design.
There are four Elective Modules: Metal Thread Embroidery, Whitework Embroidery, Counted Thread Embroidery and Machine Embroidery.
Every Module will have three classes over three months. There will be six hours of tuition in each class. Classes will run from 9:15am to 4pm with 45 mins for lunch.
Assessment tasks with their assessment criteria will be given to participants. One month is given to complete and hand in the assessment tasks after the module is completed. This work will be returned with written feedback and a Graded Certificate.
A participant will be entitled to receive a Graded Certificate in Contemporary Stitch and Design on successfully completing the two mandatory Core Modules and two Elective Modules.
The modules are stand-alone and do not need to be studied in sequence but the two Core Modules and the two Elective Modules must be completed within four years.
Participants can also study a Core Module or Elective Module without the intention of working towards receiving the Graded Intermediate Certificate.
Applicants for this course need to be technically confident stitchers who have a desire to be experimental, innovative and artistic stitchers. To apply send images of work or samples or a couple of finished items to Mary Brown. These works only need to demonstrate technical expertise in the specialities that are going to be taken by the applicant. This is not a course that teaches an embroidery speciality at an introductory level. The samples/works do not have to be original designs.
If applicants intend to do the Colour and Design Module, it is essential that they have prior knowledge of basic colour theory and of design elements and principles gleaned from either attending formal courses/workshops or through independent research.
If applicants know they need to acquaint themselves with colour theory and design to be appropriately prepared for the Colour and Design Module, they can attend Kath Wilkinson’s Basic Colour Theory workshop and Mary Brown’s Elements and Principles of Design workshop as advertised in the RECORD and in the Workshops page on this website.
This programme of study is open to members and non-members.
