The Bath Textile Summer School, 21-26 August 2017

Latest news

Both of Hilary Beattie's classes are nearly full. There are now two places on her gel class so if you are thinking about it do book soon to avoid disappointment! There are still a few places for the wonderful Janet Bolton's fabric pictures class and the delightful Linda Miller's pictorial machine embroidery class. Or if you have never painted directly onto fabric for your backgrounds, or just for the joy of it, do consider batik with Rosi Robinson. (Please note that Rosi’s class is at the BRLSI and not the Holburne Museum as advised previously.)
Jenny’s Christmas workshop, Becky’s gold work and Rachel’s beading workshops are full, but please if you are interested.

Great news from the Holburne Museum. During the time of the Summer School there will be a super international tapestry exhibition entitled Tapestry: Here & Now with lectures, events, workshops and a symposium. Full details to be announced soon!

Students at one of Rosi’s batik workshops

The fourth Textile Summer School takes place from Monday 21st to Friday 26th August and will be held once again at the Holburne Museum and the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institute (BRLSI) in the beautiful city of Bath. Among the highlights of the week we are extremely pleased that Hilary Beattie will be offering two two-day workshops this year. We have really wanted to offer painting on fabric and we’re thrilled that Rosi Robinson is able to offer a two-day class. We’re absolutely delighted to have Rachel Kinnison from the United States coming to give a fabulous four-day beading workshop inspired by the wonderful beaded basket in the Holburne.
