MY TUITION

I am excited to be offering my new textile workshops this year. 

I was lucky enough to be taught by a female class teacher who rewarded hard work with sewing all afternoon. In the sewing class room there was a double fronted cupboard full of every shade of Anchor Tapestry thread. 

In 2000, I completed a 4 year City & Guilds Creative Embroidery course. Since then, I has been working as an artist-maker in textiles for over 20 years.

I now look forward to passing on my knowledge and passion for textiles to anyone who would like to learn this rewarding skill.

My workshops are held in Harnham, Salisbury and will start as soon as lockdown restrictions have been removed.

Please email for more information and to reserve a place.
