We are inspired and bursting with enthusiasm for our given specialities and our aim is to offer top quality workshops using

excellent materials. We want you to be delighted when you take your creation home at the end of your session. We will provide

full instructions in case you would like to make another!

Our classes are small  to ensure you receive the tuition you require and we will always try to run a class whether we are fully booked or have one participant.

Come along and join us in any or all of our fabulous workshops!
