WORKSHOPS

UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO THE CURRENT CORONAVIRUS CRISIS ALL WORKSHOPS ARE CANCELLED. I AM HOPING TO RUN MY EDINBURGH STUDIO WORKSHOPS THIS AUTUMN. PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR DETAILS

With over thirty years experience of weaving I enjoy the opportunity

of sharing ideas, techniques and stories through teaching. I

give talks and run workshops around the UK for guilds and host venues including Weavers Bazaar, Selvedge and the Embroiderers Guild.


I also run a regular programme of two day workshops for small groups from my home based studio in Edinburgh. They offer some  time out to learn, socialise and be creative in relaxed surroundings.


For more details please contact me directly.
