Workshops for your group
In presenting workshops at the Knitting and Stitching Show and Festival of Quilts, I have a wide range of workshops I can deliver. Having been sewing and knitting for over 40 years I have tucked quite a number of skills under 'my belt', which I love to share and see people enjoy new skills.
The early part of my career as an Occupational Therapist gave me good grounding in skills for running creative groups, which have been useful in my career change to teaching creative skills and workshops.
I am available to come to your group and teach the knitting and sewing workshops detailed above. However, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic I am currently not taking bookings, although I am quite happy to discuss options for the future by email and poentially online conversation .
Based in Chester, I can travel to all parts of the UK.
You can contact me via this website for details of the cost of workshops and discuss details of my workshops designed for your group.
