I am available for one day and two day workshops designed to teach techniques and processes which participants can take in their own direction. I work with a combination of stitch, paints and mixed media. 

I am happy to deliver workshops to Textile, Papercraft and Church groups, with due consideration given to distance to travel. Contact me to discuss your requirements. 

These are the workshops I offer.

Painted Tiles

A one day workshop using acrylic paints, stencils, stamps and printing with a Venice/Gothic architecture theme. A kit will be provided (at extra cost) which includes a 20cm square canvas, cotton fabric and different papers. The morning consists of using the wet media on the fabric and papers. The afternoon is spent hand stitching and assembling the ‘tile’. For those not inspired by an architectural theme there is the possibility of a seed head theme.


 Grid Book

This one day workshop uses acrylic paints, stencils, stamps and printing to make random marks on calico. When dry the fabric is cut up and reassembled before being folded into a book. A sewing machine is essential.


Hanging Book

A one day workshop which introduces the hanging book. Full instructions are given for assembling the book with students assembling their books by lunchtime. The remaining time will be spent hand stitching. The book is unlikely to be finished in the day depending on how much stitching students wish to do on their books.


Exploding Book
suitable for textile groups or papercraft groups

An introduction to assembling an exploding book – easier than you think! A collage based workshop using paper and card which can be developed into textiles.

I am also available for Talks and a one day workshop Exploring Creativity
