WORKSHOPS AND CLASSES FOR 2017

I teach small classes in my studio at 21 Cranberry Way, Hull. You can learn a variety of traditional embroidery techniques, to take your embroidery to the next level. Classes are suitable for different levels of embroidery skills, as indicated. Materials are provided (unless stated) but you will need to bring a basic sewing kit. The maximum number of students is 6, so booking is essential.
