November Residential


Lake district Residential

Abbot Hall

Grange over Sands

November 24th – 28th


This includes all tuition, bed, breakfast and dinner in a single ensuite room

Every year I organise a residential course in the Lake District.

The subject for the week always brings much discussion from my existing students.

I have listened to them and to the comments from previous students who often like to return for a week of good company, good food and a chance to spend a week doing the things they love.

I now have a programme and have up until now not taken any bookings. I have just been too busy!

Please note

All rooms are ensuite, you may have a room with 2 beds in it but you will be the only one in that room

The course starts on Monday at 1pm. Please make sure you have had your lunch by then or bring a packed lunch.

It finishes at 12ish on the Friday

The timetable is as follows

Tuesday – Thursday

9am studio

12.30 – 4.00 free time.

4.00 Tea and Cake

4.30- 6.15 studio

6.30 Dinner

8.00 Studio

Monday Drawing, photography, designing, research,

Tuesday Block printing, making blocks, screen printing, discharge with decolourant, stencilling

Wednesday Appliqué and machine stitching

Thursday machine stitching

Friday finishing off

I will be encouraging students to make a large hanging / quilt. This is not essential but I thought it might be better than making lots of smaller samples.

We will take our inspiration from the surrounding landscape but this year I would like to look more at the individual flora and fauna and make the flowers, grasses, ferns more stylised. We will start by researching styles eg 1950’s
