There are just 4 places available on each date to ensure you receive personal attention in a warm and welcoming space. The workshops are relaxed and informal, each one one planned to give you the skills in a new technique. The idea being that you can acquire the skills you need to design and plan your own work in the future knowing which technique to employ to achieve the desired result. 

We start at 10am and finish at 4pm. I provide most equipment and all materials required on the day, I provide refreshments, biscuits and cake but you will need to bring a packed lunch with you. You may prefer to bring your own sharp scissors, notebook & pen and a hand towel. I have a wide selection of both natural & dyed wool, silks, fancy yarns etc for you to use.
