Here at DesignMatters we have offered a range of creative art and craft courses for over twelve years. We currently offer two subjects, Creative Quiltmaking and Creative Sketchbooks. DesignMatters was the first centre to offer City & Guilds creative courses using online delivery and continued to do so until 2013. We offer the opportunity for students all over the world to study with flexibility and convenience. All course content is devised and written by Linda and Laura Kemshall and is richly illustrated throughout with numerous examples, inspirational images and step by step technique photographs. Creative Sketchbooks also features video demonstrations of many processes.
Course materials are provided via a dedicated section of this website. The beauty of studying online is that the course materials are available all day, every day, ensuring that students can access the information they require at a time and place that suits their individual circumstances.
In addition to the detailed and illustrated instructional materials provided, students can also receive one-to-one advice and feedback from a DesignMatters tutor. Sending work to our tutors is easy - it's all done via email so there's no waiting on postal deliveries or worrying that work might get damaged or lost. All work is submitted for feedback as digital images attached to emails. Technical assistance on how to do this is provided in a 'Getting Started Guide' which is provided to all students upon enrolment. Essentially, if you can take a digital photograph or scan an image and send an email, then you have all of the technical skills required to send your work for feedback.
