I teach workshops in a range of crafts including Knitting, Crochet, Bag Making, Dressmaking, Hand Embroidery, and Patchwork, in addition to general sewing skills.

My face to face teaching takes place in both Nottingham and Newark, where I teach privately. 

I also teach in Nottingham for Inspire Learning (inspireculture.org.uk) and the Workers Educational Association (wea.org.uk). My teaching for both of these organisations is currently online learning via Zoom during the Coronavirus but is likely to continue with a mixture of online and face to face teaching once this is possible.

Current online teaching I have scheduled for the Autumn Term 2020 includes
  • Introduction to Bag Making
  • Introduction to Patchwork
  • Knitting - The Basics and Beyond
  • Crochet - Granny Squares and Beyond
  • Curtain Making Techniques
  • Cushion Making Techniques
  • Tunisian Crochet
  • Hand Embroidery
