Sparsholt College Hampshire


Summer School 2017 is to be held at Sparsholt College, Hampshire, from Sunday 13th – Sunday 20thAugust 2017.

This summer school is called ‘Simply Special’ as the event is being kept simple; all courses are running for the full week.   Also Association Summer School is a unique event in the range of courses offered and the value for money.

An exciting and innovative choice of courses, eighteen in all, are planned, from, weaving, spinning and dyeing, to felt, paper making, knitting, and basketry, some courses and tutors are new to Summer School and some are back by popular demand.

All the tutors come highly recommended, and have been selected for their ability to deliver a truly wonderful ‘Simply Special’ Summer School course.

Sparsholt, a large and attractive campus, home to Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time’s Potting Shed and garden, is close to Winchester, with its many historic places to visit on the Wednesday afternoon.  A small exhibition, ‘A Touch of Silk’, of work from the south east Guilds is planned at Whitchurch Silk Mill.

Summer School week will include all the usual favourites, a trade fair, silent auction, fashion show, raffle, COA exhibition, with a final celebration of a Gala Dinner.

The brochure will be available, online, from mid September 2016, from, the AGWDS website, and will also be emailed to your Guild secretary.

Allocation of courses will begin on January 1st 2017, with a ‘names in the hat’ system for over subscribed courses.

The AGWSD Summer Schools are very special occasions; they are ‘Simply Special’.
