I can provide tuition in the following areas:

  • Darning and mending

  • Fibre blending using a drum carder or blending board


As a secondary school teacher and librarian I have over a decade’s experience in teaching craft skills to children, teens and adults. Working in groups of up to eight gives me the chance to spend time with each of my students and help them individually to find their way into these wonderful skills. Together we’ll break down the basics into manageable packets so that by the end of the session you have enough knowledge and confidence to go forward on your own and develop your skills. I take a patient and positive approach, so please don’t worry if you usually find classes intimidating.

I welcome bookings from schools, clubs, professional organisations and individuals.
