Our beginner’s Skill Stage 1 Courses are called ‘Getting Started’ as they are intended to help those who are new to textiles make an easy and inexpensive start.
We market them from a separate site called "The Study Store", as this enables us to include a specialist eLearning system within the site, so access to your course materials is achieved instantly and you can get started with your online learning straight away. They are written and certificated by the School of Stitched Textiles and are great for beginners or the more advanced alike, as they deliver an easy to follow introduction to a specific technique or project.
Beginners can use these courses for basic skills tuition, taking one after another to increase their knowledge. More advanced students can dip in and out to fill a skills gap. Delivered online using a combination of video and written instructions, students have their own online work area and are able to take the course at their own pace. Students are invited to take photos of their work as they progress and submit them online. When completed, a certificate of achievement will be issued.
Please view the different subjects available and read more about what each course contains at the link below. They remain available online to students for 1 year after purchase and we do periodically update the range to provide interest and variety.
