The TSG Summer School has long been a highlight of the year and the Summer School of 2016 has been no exception. This year summer school was held at James College, York University which is a lovely campus with its large lake and varied bird life. Ducks with their ducklings and green legged grebes walked about the campus with little concern for the humans walking between accommodation blocks and the studio class rooms. We were blessed with lovely weather all week – if anything the first two nights were rather warm – but it was a lovely atmosphere, pleasantly warm during the day while everyone worked.
The tutors this year were Bobby Britnell, Alison King and Sheila Mortlock and looking at the results on display at the end of the week it was clear that each class had worked hard, challenged by the course but going home with ideas to take forward into textiles.
These photographs give a general view of the venue and the working spaces but images from the three classes will be added over the next few weeks so watch out for future posts.
