Spring Textiles Workshops

Sarah Campbell is the doyenne of pattern, having worked at Liberty and then her own company Collier Campbell with her sister Susan Collier for over 50 years. There’s a rare chance to learn from the master this summer thanks to the Minerva Workshop who are hosting a Pattern Making with Repeats course in June. Sarah Campbell rarely teaches this particular subject as it’s quite specialist but for any aspiring wallpaper designers out there it would be a great investment of time.  Previous students told her they learnt more from her in a weekend than they had on their 3 year textile courses! The three-day course runs on 19-20 June and 29 June, book here.
Minerva’s spring workshops also include Specialist Paint Techniques with Alice Clark – a wonderfully talented and expert specialist painter. Learn how to create faux marbling, tortoiseshell and wood effects as well as gilding on a 2-day course 22-23 May. And there’s the brilliant lampshade courses – learn to make a gathered shade with a pleated lining, or handprint your own at weekend workshops throughout the summer.
