Course Information Page

The City & Guilds Certificate in Patchwork & Quilting offers a stimulating and structured programme of study that will introduce you to a comprehensive range of experimental techniques and traditional skills.

Level 3 involves a course of 12 modules studied over three years. The course is studied on a distance learning basis at home.

The course involves a study of contemporary as well as historical patchwork & quilting methods, art and design, and research skills using museums, galleries and libraries. Each module focuses on a structured series of practical and theoretical assignments, while the annual assessment exhibition in London provides an opportunity to exhibit work and to be assessed.

Open days take place at the end of each summer and include tutorials, lectures, seminars, plus opportunities to meet tutors and purchase specialist materials and books. The annual residential Summer School takes place in July and is now a popular aspect of our programme, where students are able to meet with some of the leading textile artists in the UK and from abroad.

Level 3 modules cost £156.00 each (inc. VAT).
