Irish Quilt & Design, will be offering C&G Diploma level courses again. This course is aimed at the experienced patchworker and/or stitcher. The diploma course is specifically designed for those who want to push themselves beyond their current boundaries and develop an individual voice.
This course will be available via St. John’s Central College, Sawmill Street, Cork. To facilitate distance learning, this course will be offered as a combinations of studio based workshops, in intensive 4-5 day courses, and on-line support.
The City & Guilds Diplomal Level course will be available on-line, through this website. This version of the course is aimed at advanced level students who are committed and who enjoy the challenge of working independently.
Each module will be presented on video, with the content accessible only to registered students. These will be accompanied by structured exercises to expand on the concepts introduced in the video. Students’ work will be assessed on-line at the end of each module. Further discussion of work will take place at the one-day workdays.
