Crafting At The Cottage
I offer a range of inspirational and hands-on crafting courses and workshops all around the UK. My crafting classes are fun and interactive, they don’t require any special skills, just a willingness to learn something new – thanks to the wonderful students I teach, no class is ever the same, and it is a fantastic opportunity to do something different and meet a diverse range of people. Crafting allows you to express your creativity in a whole variety of ways and my contemporary spin on these traditional skills make my couses rewarding and memorable experiences.
I was delighted when the very lovely Katie from ‘Arnold’s Attic’ asked me if I would like to be interviewed for her Youtube channel. Two textile loving lasses from Rochdale, what fun!
DID YOU SEE US ON THE BBC?
Watch me and some other talented crafters on the very first episode of ‘Make!’.
All Being well, these are my Upcoming Courses
I am hoping that these will all run, but we live in strange times. Please check the current situation before booking.
I look forward to helping you find your creative side!

Get SOMEONE something really Special
I design and produce a range of eye-catching and quirky prints, cards, bags and tea towels – all using my unique, typographic paper cut designs.
They start life as thumb nail sketches which are worked up to finished designs. I then cut them out of paper freehand using a scalpel blade. The finished cuts are scanned and coloured and sent off to the printers.
Visit my shop to see what’s available. Or attend a course and explore your own creativity!
I come from a creative family, my parents were both graphic designers, my uncle was a photographer, painter and printmaker, and my grandad was a wedding photographer and painter. My creative destiny was set very early; I was going to be arty; speciality unspecified and to be honest that’s how it has been throughout my life.
I offer inspiring and highly creative courses at a variety of teaching centres across the UK or you can come to my delightful thatched cottage. Alternatively I can come to you. Expert tuition with a large dollop of fun thrown in suits both the crafting novice or more accomplished maker alike. I also offer talks to interested groups (for example the WI, U3A) and private craft workshops, these could be for a group of friends looking for a fun way of celebrating a significant occasion or just wanting to craft together.
