Photos from the 2015 Summer School
Summer School 2016 has just finished for 2016 and thank you to the lovely tutors Angie Hughes, Chris Gray and Helen Richman for all their hard work and to everyone who attended who made it such a success. The staff at Scalford Hall were lovely and did their best to accommodate our requests while also dealing with a large wedding and a twenty first birthday celebration in an almost seamless manner. Photos of the wonderful work will follow shortly.
Summer School is open to stitchers of all abilities, whether you are a complete beginner or have been stitching for more years than you care to remember.
Scalford Hall was chosen because it is almost the central point of our widespread region and is one of the few places where all our activities can take place under one roof. The previous two venues had separate eating & sleeping accommodation, ok when the weather's fine but not when it rains! Added to that it is a nice Country House set in lovely surroundings with excellent food. We offer approximately 16 hours of tuition starting on the Friday evening through to mid afternoon on Sunday. The price for the 2015 Summer School was £290 which is similar in cost to using other venues in the area. We also did price comparisons with other summer schools last year and again the price of ours was comparable. For example Bath’s summer school for last year was £190 without accommodation and East region had a similar offering for £265 but it only included 12 hours of tuition.
Above all Summer School is a place to meet like-minded people in friendly and comfortable surrounding giving you the opportunity to work on developing your stitching techniques for a whole weekend.
