eCourse Advanced Quilting and Patchwork Design Textiles



eCourse Advanced Quilting and Patchwork Design Textiles

Take your quilting to the top with quilt designer, fabric designer and quilt maker Karen Platt. Enhance your skills with creative development, innovative design, advanced skills and techniques as well as increasing your knowledge. The ecourse is written from scratch by Karen Platt. A unique ecourse without parallel.

eCourse Advanced Quilting and Patchwork Design Textiles consists of 10 carefully considered units to advance your learning and skills. Four of the units are optional, the written units and assessment. Whilst you are encouraged to take these, we know from research that most people dislike that aspect of courses, therefore all written units are optional and purchased separately.

The time taken to complete this ecourse is dependant upon how many units you take, see pricing below. You work at your own pace, there is no deadline for work to be completed, another bonus that our students love.

Please contact me through the contact form with the subject heading Advanced quilting to let me know if you wish to take the optional units as well. They are 50gbp each or 180 gbp for the total of four units. I usually respond the same day (depending on time difference if you live in a different part of the world). I will send an invoice to be paid and you can opt to pay monthly, which is a little more expensive but means you do not have to pay all at once. You are committing to pay for the number of units you select, whether you decide to complete them or not.

The whole ecourse is delivered as pdf units, so you can take this distance learning ecourse from anywhere in the world.
N.B. There is no refund once the ecourse is downloaded. You are using this ecourse for personal use only and not to teach. You are waiving your right to a 14 day refund when you purchase.
