SEWING WORKSHOPS

‘Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.’ 

Passing on my passion for crafts and helping people to access their own creativity is what drives my teaching. Encouraging people to not just copy, but to allow themselves to find new and ultimately their own ways of making things, is such a joy.

I’d like to invite you, your family, friends and colleagues to join me at my workshops, which are available for all skill levels.
