I love teaching, always have and probably always will! I am passionate about passing on my skills, and I enjoy creating a relaxed and fun environment while still making sure all my students go away with the feeling that they have really learned a lot.
I offer private tuition (for up to 3 students) in my home studio, starting from £20.00 per person, per hour. Full details at the bottom of this page.
I offer full day workshops for larger groups (between 3 and 14 students) from £200.00 per day. Workshops are 5 hours and I usually provide a kit for each student (£15.00-£40.00 each).
Please note, while the Coronavirus Pandemic is still with us, I am only teaching online except on rare occasions.
Throughout the year I have scheduled workshops hosted at various venues which are listed here. Please note that I can't offer a booking service for workshops hosted by other venues, to book you will need to visit the course provider's website or ring them on the number listed.
More details on private tuition:
One person £25.00 per hour
Two people £45.00 per hour
Three people £60.00 per hour
The minimum booking is 2 hours (a morning or afternoon session).
Currently, the majority of my private tuition is online, via Zoom. I am finding this a very effective way to teach and it allows me to teach people from much further away.
I am not taking on regular students at the moment as my diary is pretty full, but if you would like to learn with me, please get in touch and I will put you on my waiting list. I am constantly flexing my working patterns, so I may well be able to fit you in soon.
I ask for a £25 deposit per session at the time of booking to secure the date, then the balance a week in advance. If you cancel with less than 2 weeks to go you lose the deposit, with less than one week you pay in full. If I have to cancel for any reason you will receive a full refund.
I can provide all the necessary equipment for design and stitching, and I have a lot of reference books for the various techniques.
I generally try to book teaching for Monday and Wednesday afternoons, but I can also arrange other times.
I have a little terrier in the house - she is very friendly and sociable and usually after saying hello she takes herself off for a nap, but if you have any trouble at all with dogs just let me know and I will confine her away from my studio or get a sitter.
