Other Information

One or two workshops run mornings only, however, the majority are day-long courses, generally starting at 10 am and finishing at 4.30 pm.

They are generally held in either a village hall or at other suitable venues.

Tea, coffee, soft drinks and biscuits are provided, but you will be required to bring a packed lunch.

My classes are suitable for beginners unless otherwise stated. The courses are very friendly and supportive. Never be afraid to ask questions, ask for explanations or demonstrations if you don’t understand the first time.

Places on the courses are limited to a maximum of 8 people thus ensuring time for individual attention.
