What is an Intermediate course?
An Intermediate course is a series of classes designed to move you beyond the beginner stage. It develops your skills in a particular technique, as well as your confidence in general. Different techniques are offered from year to year.
Each course runs for six sessions, from 10.00 to 2.30 (includes 30 minutes lunch break).
You’ll learn much more about the particular technique, complete some samplers, and produce at least one finished item. There will be homework after each session, and at the end you’ll hand in a small folder of notes and your finished work for assessment.
To enrol, students must demonstrate a knowledge of basic stitches, as well as some experience in the basics of the chosen technique.
If you are thinking of participating in an Intermediate subject, keep an eye out for any classes being offered that would help to add to your skills and knowledge. We try to timetable basic/beginners classes before an Intermediate subject is offered.
If you successfully complete three Intermediate courses within five years, and take part in the Intermediate Final Display, you will receive your Intermediate Certificate. Or you can simply take individual subjects from time to time.
Many members find these courses so valuable that they complete more than three courses,
learning a wide variety of techniques.
