About your Tutor
Bev is joint owner of Old bank Studios along with husband Nigel and runs the separate textile studio which is fully equipped with high end sewing machines. This is what she says:
My background is in interior design and soft furnishing, for which I hold the highest level OCN and City & Guilds and am qualified to teach in adult education.
I am also a keen painter and over the years have enjoyed mixing it all up and exploring machine embroidery with mixed media.
I never stop experimenting and am privileged to have access to an endless source of materials and so many other talented artists and tutors.
Since restarting our events in summer 2020, we have introduced changes to the way we operate; including reduced class sizes. The studio has been re organised to enable everyone to remain socially distant whilst at their workstation and hand sanitiser is provided. A large video screen has been mounted on the wall to enable everyone to view demonstrations from where they are working, eliminating the need to gather around the tutor. Lunch is now in the form of a packup to be eaten at your workstation; it may be served hot or cold. Drinks are available all day on a self serve basis.
Please try to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before the event begins to allow plenty of time to get settled in. The wearing of face masks is not required whilst at your workstation, but we would ask you to use one when moving about the studio.
