Don't miss on a thrilling needlework adventure organized by Lynne Roche, the famous doll-maker. Come to the beautiful city of Bath, in the summer of next year to learn from some of the most exciting internationally renowned textile artists and teachers. Also enjoy the venues where the workshops will take place - the American Museum and the Holburne Museum. Both the museums have fantastic textiles amongst their unique collections which you can see excerpted here and participants will be able to immerse themselves in the museums' treasures.
The Summer School will take place from Monday 18 August to Saturday 23 August when there will be a textile fair at the American Museum. The Summer School takes place against a backdrop of a greatly anticipated retrospective exhibition of Kaffe Fassett in the gallery at the American Museum. There will be nine 2-day workshops to choose from in an exciting program of textile technique and creativity. Not forgetting a free day to enjoy Bath, when there will be a super program of optional diverse textile related lectures at the Holburne Museum, a morning walk around the city in the company of Dr Allan Phillipson who will bring the city alive telling of its extraordinary history and past inhabitants both real and fictional. Finishing with a get-together and supper in the Holburne's lovely new café.
