City and Guilds Level 3  in Patchwork and Quilting

 

I’m delighted you are considering taking a City & Guilds Level 3 qualification with us. It’s a great way to develop your existing patchwork and quilting skills and to explore new techniques and ideas. Thanks to the last minute reprieve by City & Guilds students can still enrol until 2019. Great news!

The next course will begin on the weekend of 21st & 22nd October 2017 with a total of 16 weekend sessions spread over 2 years and a one week summer school in June 2018.
The Level 3 Certificate course is a two year course of study during which you will explore a broad range patchwork, appliqué and quilting techniques as well as developing your design skills through practical exercises. You will have the opportunity to dye and print your own fabrics, carry out research and develop designs for your finished items.
This two year course takes place either one weekend a month for 8 months starting in October each year and a one week summer school in June. or on Thursday fortnightly for 16 sessions. It is held at The Bridge Community Education Centre, just outside Brighton, where we use both classroom and art room space. Parking is free and there is a very tempting cafe on site.

  • You will produce a folio of dyeing and printing techniques.
  • A quilt or wall hanging
  • A Miniature quilt

I’m also happy to report that last year the School achieved excellent results again with more than half of all the students in fashion and textiles awarded a Distinction, the highest grade for a City and Guild qualification.

Two of my Certificate students were juried into the City & Guilds Quilters Guild Bursary Award Gallery and received very favourable comments from the judges.

At the Festival of Quilts 2017 two students were juried into the City & Guilds Quilters Guild Bursary Award Gallery. Jane Spedding and Kelly Cheelsey received very favourable comments from the judges about their work and it was a great opportunity for them to have their work seen by so many visitors to the show.
