Each course is broken down into lessons and activities. Each lesson has a demonstration video for you to follow techniques and tips from Kim.
There is an area for comments and photos within the lesson.

There will occasionally be worksheets or projects for you to follow but mostly you will be expected to use the videos as inspiration for developing your own projects and playing with techniques. Participants are encouraged to ask questions, post pictures and learn much in the way they would in a classroom situation but a big difference is the length of time in which it will be possible for us to engage with each other.

The main workshops will be available for 6 months so you can work at your own pace should you wish. Kim will be available for daily contact for the first 2 weeks of the course and then as often as she can. As long students are working in the workshops, Kim will keep checking in.

Experimental Textiles will be available for 1 year from the start of the course.


Great videos again Kim thank you, even a daft old bat beginner like me could understand them.
