Following a wonderful week at the 2016 summer school, bookings for both the Textile Summer School and Painting Summer School 2017 are now open. Do have a look at some of the lovely workshops we have planned for next year!!

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.
