Advanced Course in Experimental Embroidery

Course Information Page

The Advanced Course in Experimental Embroidery is now a successful part of the Opus programme. It offers an ideal opportunity for students who wish to explore and develop their personal creativity and to extend and develop their personal ideas.

The Advanced Course is designed to enable you to find your own personal creativity using stitched textiles, to work independently and to extend and develop aspects of professional practice as a textile artist.

The course is ideal for all who wish to extend their personal practice with stitched textiles to a higher level and provides a sound starting point for anyone who is considering building a portfolio of work for application to the modular degree programme. The course is studied on a distance learning basis at home.

The course is structured as four modules, each exploring a variety of perceptual and experimental approaches to stitched textiles and art and design concepts. The course is supported throughout by written tutorials and a review of each assignment, and assessed at the end-of-year exhibition in a central London gallery.

Modules for the Advanced Course cost £180.00(inc. VAT) each.
