There will be three courses at Knuston Hall un Northamptonshire in 2016. There are two courses 'back to back' in February/March and a longer 'Summer School' in August.
Knuston Hall provides full board accommodation for those who want it. However, if you live near you can attend as a day student. The aim of these courses is to help experienced students develop their own personal creative ideas.
Please note: a basic knowledge of stitch is essential for all of my courses.
