Want to Try? Workshops and Classes.

I have  Wednesdays  set aside for teaching at home.  There are informal evenings and more structured day workshops available.   As numbers are low individual tuition and/or projects are encouraged so students can make progress at their own speed and follow their own interests.  Email me for more info or booking, or check out my website.  Sign up for the newsletter to be kept upto date.

Stitchy Evenings Spring 2019 : 
you will need your own machine and materials.

– Wednesday 7-9pm, £12 . May 1, 15, 29,  June – to be confirmed.

IN THE BEGINNING –   setting up your machine, try out the basics, making patterns and lines,  drawing with the machine, being decorative.   Dealing with problems, gaining confidence.

MORE ADVENTURES – building fabrics, papers and other things into your stitching, creating surfaces and textures. Raw applique, couching, ripping, tearing.

Making and building designs/pictures.  Planning,  designing, selecting, executing. Problem solving.  Not confident about Art? How to cheat creatively. Working with colour.


Stitchy Days Workshops Spring 2019
10-3pm £35, includes basic materials. You will need your own machine and threads.

May 8th – Creative Textiles – experimenting with water soluble fabric, non woven surfaces and playing with paint on fabric.

May22nd – Creative Textiles – Ideas to Stitch. Ever had a great idea or really wanted to make an image but not known how to start? Which techniques, colours and aprroaches to use? This day will walk you through the process, encourage you to experiment and prepare, help you make decisions and work out when to panic or when to just go and put the kettle on!

June 5th – Twisting Tree. A great way to start – or move it onto experimental techniques.

Workshops are in my workroom in Acomb, York, so numbers are small– you will need your own machine- nothing new or fancy is required, just staight stitch and preferably the function to drop the feed dogs is enough to get creative.

I  do private workshop  bookings for groups of friends or clubs at my venue or yours,  and will travel to do demonstrations/talks. Please contact to enquire.
