I teach Goldwork, Stumpwork, Surface Embroidery. I also run workshops on felt decorations and accessories. Please have a look at the gallery for example of my work or at the shop. I usually provide a kit with everything you need. It is also possible to decide to use your own design and we will work together in your desired technique and make your piece truly original.
The felt decorations are ideal for anybody that has never picked up a needle and want to make a start, they are also great for birthday parties or hen do, something a little different.
I can also help you finish this piece of work that has been in the back of the wardrobe forever or that you inherited from your grandmother. Do get in touch to discuss any requirement.
