I teach beginners, improvers, those wishing to learn design, shaped weaving and textural effects, including Tree Weaving. Regular classes and tutorials. One-to-one and small groups by appointment.
I run a monthly Saturday weaving class for all levels from my studio in Angmering. Individual tuition throughout the year. I also run weaving, dyeing and textile courses from 1 to 5 days.
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. My life by the sea inspires my work and students can learn how to include beach finds such as shells in their work.
