Crafting Courses

Paper cutting, patchworking (various and assorted), and creative textiles are brought right up to date with a contemporary spin. ‘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.

Creative Paper Cutting

CREATIVE PAPER CUTTING

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 Patchwork

MACHINE PATCHWORK

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

Handstitched Patchwork

HANDSTICHED PATCHWORK

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.

Christmas Makes

CHRISTMAS MAKES

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

Private Courses

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.

 

WI TALKS

I am a speaker for the WI and offer three talks:

  1. Paper Cutting, a look at the history, international styles and techniques, how I started and my influences
  2. Patchwork, a very personal take on this most traditional of crafts, my influences and my design process
  3. To the BBC and Beyond, how I realised my childhood dream of making pictures for television, some of the programmes I worked on and what that involved and what I do now

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.
