Qualified textile tutor (Cert Ed). I run my own business as a designer/maker and am a member of the Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Craft and the International Feltmakers Association. I teach mostly adults but occasionally teach in schools for interested groups and set projects. Recent workshops have included "Make do and Mend" where recycled knits were used to make accessories which were then put into an exhibition at a local musuem, and a "Customised Shoe" workshop at a local secondary school as part of a GCSE course.

Inspiration for my work is drawn from the natural environment, particularly woodlands, and my love of being able to re-cycle materials where possible.

My work is exhibited and sold in local galleries and I belong to two groups of artists who exhibit throughout South Shropshire.


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.


Fees for workshops are payable in advance. Refund policy - fee will be refunded if the course is unable to run owing to lack of numbers. If you need to cancel I will require a minimum of 2 weeks notice for refund of your fee.

For groups booking me as a visiting tutor I require a £50 non-refundable deposit on booking. If the workshop does not run I require a week's notice.
