Crafting Courses​

Papercutting, patchworking (various and assorted), and creative textiles are brought right up to date with a contemporary spin in my fun craft courses. ‘Inspiring’, ‘fun’, and ‘wonderful’ are words often used by my students to describe my courses, so whether you are a crafting novice or more experienced maker, why not treat yourself to some quality crafty time.  As well as courses throughout the UK, I also do private talks and classes.


Paper cutting is the on trend craft of the moment, but it dates back many years and is an international craft with traditions in China, Mexico and Poland.


Machine stitched patchwork enables speedy production of all manner of items: designs can evolve organically resulting in unique pieces.


Hand stitched patchwork with or without templates, has a rich history spanning several centuries, whilst being right up to date with its recycling ethos and therapeutic benefits.


Hand embroidered calico stars and hearts, patchwork stars and fabric wreaths make perfect Christmas decorations and are fun to make.


I am hoping that these will all run, but we live in strange times. Please check the current situation before booking.

If you’ve got a special occasion coming up, a birthday perhaps, or anniversary, a hen party or may be you just want to have some crafty fun with friends, I am very happy to organize something special and fun, may be bunting making or a group made patchwork quilt, do drop me a line.


I regularly give talks to interested groups including WI, U3A and patchworking groups. I offer three different talks all of which are well illustrated with lots of images and hands on resources.

  1. Paper Cutting, a look at the history, international styles and techniques, how I started and my influences
  2. Improvised patchwork, a very personal take on this most traditional of crafts, my influences and my design process
  3. ‘Working for Auntie’, how I realised my childhood dream of making pictures for television, some of the programmes I worked on and what that involved from ‘Our Friends in the North’, to the Queen’s Christmas speech

WI groups welcome visitors so if you would like to come to a talk let me know and I can put you in touch with the relevant person.
