I teach beginners and those who want to develop their skills in tapestry weaving through exploring techniques, use of colour and design.

Learn how to set up, weave a variety of techniques for shapes, shading and diagonals. The classes are small so students have a lot of individual help and encouragement.

I teach near the beach in St Leonards on Sea/Hastings so students can have a stroll along the prom as well as learning about tapestry.
