Sewing, spinning and weaving
Private tuition, classes and commissions


2 hours and up • £20/hour

I am able to offer beginner spinning sessions with the use of a wheel, fibre and lunch included. This would usually be a four hour session, including a break for lunch. I can teach up to two people.

As a follow up it is possible to hire one of my wheels for £5/week (I ask for a £200 fully refundable cash deposit to cover replacing a missing or damaged wheel)

I also offer sessions for guided practice and one for  ‘improvers’ where you can try out different spinning styles, various  fibres and some of the spinning accessories such as a blending board or drum carder.

1 hour and up • £20/hour

I have a variety of weaving looms, including a Brinkley Loom and Peg loom and so am able to offer a choice of weaving styles, or can offer a session looking at all of the different looms and what they have to offer.

All weaving materials are provided. Sessions vary in length depending on requirements.

I can accommodate 1-3 students in these sessions

I teach a multitude of sewing skills, both by hand and machine. I can cover various types of embroidery, smocking, patchwork, quilt making and beginner dressmaking, bag making and bunting as well as the basics of how to use a sewing machine. If there is something you have always wanted to learn please ask and I will let you know if I can help.

Sewing sessions are usually about three hours long and include tea/coffee and biscuits or even homemade cake. Individuals or groups of up six are welcome.

I can provide machines, threads, hoops, needles etc. I usually ask participants to provide their own fabric
