Workshops

I love learning new skills and passing them on to others is great fun!

I teach a variety of workshops including traditional techniques such as rag rug making and paper pieced patchwork.

I also teach workshops at venues across Hampshire, including Aspex, Making Space & Make.

I am always scheduling new workshops so pop back to this page for updates or join my mailing list here to have the information sent straight to your inbox!
