I offer a range of embroidery workshops from my home studio as well as around the world!

Workshops from my home studio in Medstead, Hampshire

Classes from my studio ‘The Nest’ will resume running in 2019. These are small intimate groups of a maximum number of 4-6 – find out more and see planned dates here.

Teaching to Groups and Guilds

I offer full day workshops to any group who is willing to organise one and have me travel to teach them. I am prepared to travel to a suitable venue providing there are at least 6 pupils and my travelling costs are covered.

Workshops can be organised according to specific requests, I will organise a class around your needs. Maximum number of 6 – 10 students unless otherwise specified. Mostly I find that my classes are mixed, i.e. students choose one of the workshops projects, so that I may have 3 doing one topic, 2 doing another and the last working on his or her own project in any one given group. Students tend to learn more from each other this way. For further details, a list of prices and a more detailed list of requirements, please contact me by email or by telephone.
