Crafting At The Cottage

Whether it’s paper cutting, patchworking, or creative textiles, my courses give them a contemporary spin and makes learning a rewarding and fun experience. I offer a range of inspirational courses and workshops which can be tailored to suit you.

I have also designed and produced a range of eye catching printed items based on my typographic paper cuts available in the shop.

My name is Christine Green and I look forward to helping you find your creative side!
