International Quilt Textiles School (IQTS) Brochure ecourses 2019-2020
When I looked for courses for textiles, they were all too expensive for my meagre pocket. I discovered a gap in the market for learners who wanted to learn, but did not need a certificate. Unless you are entering the textile market with a high-profile company, you do not need a certificate. What you need is a good grounding in techniques, styles, how to process work from idea to finish and how to think and see like an artist. Here at the International Quilt Textiles School, we concentrate on just that – the important aspect of learning and applying what you have learned.
I have been a fully qualified teacher since 1980, with much experience along the way with adults and even children from all walks of life. All our courses are delivered online. This means that you get to keep and access the ecourse 24/7 even after you finish the course. You also have online access to me as a qualified teacher and instructor and hands on quilt designer and textile artist, painter and hand knitwear designer, involved in the practice from beginning to end. I have also been involved in colour all my adult life, in understand and practising what makes colour work.
There you have my core areas – quilting, embroidery and stitch, knitwear design and practice and colour. Art, including painting, painting for textiles and digital creations.
I wrote the ecourses from scratch using my own hands-on knowledge. They are unique to me. They cover what you need to know to understand the processes and to apply them even at a business level if that is your desire. So far we have learners from Australia and United Kingdom.
Please find our current brochure free to download as a pdf. Come back when you have browsed and book the ecourses you want online. We have easy payment terms and no enrolment fee. When you complete your ecourse, you can request a certificate of completion, provided proof has been given that you have completed the course. A discount is given when you take a second ecourse.
I also give talks, lectures, practical demonstrations, workshops and more in person. Please ask if you belong to a group or keep up to date with the blog for the latest talks and news.
