There are some good Denman course that are open to everybody. Most are £5 each. There are some interesting felting ones.
Thank you, Maria, for a wonderful workshop yesterday! I am really looking forward to stitching into these prints!
These were done by my grandsons at a Gelli printing and screen printing workshop with Maria. I have put them in coasters for them to give to their dad tomorrow.

Today's transformation has begun!
Spent a brilliant day finding out how to needle felt a sheep. Despite expecting the finished product to only vaguely resemble a sheep we were delighted with the final result and left well chuffed. Maria was not only very knowledgeable but had infinite patience. Can't wait to try our hand at attempting a flock of them. Thank you so much.

Have just spent a very enjoyable day making needle felt sheep. Not only is Maria very knowledgable she has infinite patience. Thanks Maria, nobody was more surprised than us that they actually looked like sheep when we finished, we were really chuffed with what we achieved.

Take a look at 'Home is where the art is' on BBC every day in the afternoon ( I record it ) there have been some brilliant textile artists on.
Lovely relaxed classes, excellent tuition and support. I have learned so much and my confidence has grown no end. Particularly enjoyed the felting course.

This page shares what we get up to on textile based classes and workshops run by myself at Fairfield 'Old School' on Fairfield Street in Warrington.

I cover free machine stitch, felting and print in various workshops and classes. This page shows course dates, details and a photo gallery of work. I also like to share inspiring links to Artist, Makers and Creators!

Morning folks, this is the lovely lady who I've had funding from the Arts Council to do some CPD with...

February Fibre Challenge!
Join me in creating a daily fibre sketch!
Explore colour relationships and ratios, pattern, line in a light, fun, expressive way!
These daily fibre sketches take just 10-15 minutes and are excellent as a creative exercise to loosen up and inspire new colourwork in your felt projects!

I've created two video tutorials to get your started!
