  Workshop Dates

A workshop is a lovely chance to learn a new skill, be inspired, and share ideas whist meeting new people. So if you’re coming alone don’t worry all workshops are small (normally 4 people), friendly and informal. A good blether is guaranteed with plenty cups of tea.

 Private tuition on a one to one basis is available Monday to Friday at the cost of £65 or why not get together with a group of friends and book a private workshop treat.

I look forward to meeting you and seeing what you create….the only limitation is your imagination!! Everything else you need to know you will learn.
