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.
