INFORMATION FOR ALL CLASSES
Total beginners and those with previous stencilling experience should benefit from any class. Also, the classes may be useful for those that are already teaching paint related workshops and want to add some extra skills to their repertoire. We will start with the basic stencil skills then build. Once the techniques have been demonstrated the students will work and experiment to their own level. Bring a note book, tape measure and an overall/apron. Refreshments, lunch (vegetarian) and materials are provided on full day classes. Please advise us if you have any allergies or dietary requirements. Refreshments and materials are provided on half day classes. We try to schedule different classes on consecutive days to help people when travelling; if a student is attending two or three classes we will offer a £5 discount on each class booked.
We are a short train ride or a longer bus ride from the city of Newcastle Upon Tyne and the historic market towns of Hexham and Corbridge. There is accommodation to suit various budgets in those places. There is also B&B accommodation in Stocksfield village but you will need to walk or drive from this. We have a car park for visitors to the Stencil Library. Newcastle upon Tyne, is 17 miles away and has an airport, rail, bus and coach station.
The classes and tours take place in a private home, there are uneven floors and stairs. The house can be cold, even in summer, so wear layers!
Classes are limited to a maximum of 6 students (4 on Chinoiserie and Fabric due to the size of the projects) and House Tours to a maximum of 15 persons, House Tours with Cushion Making a maximum of 8 persons (minimum 4). We can also host private classes or tours on other dates by request.
