Welcome to Brighton Fashion and Textile School.
I established BFaTS to provide structured courses of learning for students who want to work towards accreditation in textiles. I am a qualified experienced tutor and am approved by City and Guilds.
I also teach a variety of other short non-accredited courses in Brighton. There are courses for all interests and abilities. I teach 1 day workshops through to 2 year in-depth City and Guilds Level 3 Textiles courses in Patchwork and Quilting. Each year I teach summer schools where students can set up their work station on a Monday and not have to tidy up until Friday. Students usually complete a quilt top in one of these fun weeeks. Please check out my Course page for a full list and details of how to enrol.
The latest update from City & Guilds, and its good news this time, is that the 7716 Diploma in Design and Craft: Patchwork and Quilting courses have been saved from the cuts. A last minute turnaround has meant that students can still enrol until 2019.
So if you thought you might have missed your chance to enrol for either the Certificate or Diploma course you can still do so. Go to the Courses page for more information.
New course lesiure course are added to the website frequently so sign up and stay in touch via my newsletter and i’ll keep you updated.
At this years’ Knitting and Stitching Show, 10th – 15th October 2107, I am very excited to be exhibiting my Bojagi: Korean Textile work in the Textile Gallery. Do pop along and see me I am on stand TGF11 Bojagi -UK. Why not sign up for one of my 1 hour workshops at the show or pop along to the theatre and catch one of my demonstrations of how to create a Bojagi coaster. I will have cards and Bojagi kits for sale on the stand.
I hope you’ll explore and have a good look around this site – there’s lots to see.
Also while you are here why not take a peek at the galleries of student work past and present. Very Inspirational.
I look forward to meeting you in person, one day on one of the courses or at a show.
