GENERAL TEXTILE COURSE INFORMATION
COURSES FOR GROUPS
'Many of the courses I do are bookings for private groups, such as spinning and weaving guilds, schools, voluntary organisations or knitting groups. I counted the other day and realised I have delivered courses to more than 45 different organisations in Scotland and the North of England and quite a few have me back again and again.'

'all the feedback I have had from previous students has been excellent about you. Other people sing your praises too.'
".....you brought a great deal of material and a huge variety of equipment. You made the art of spinning look so graceful as well as simple. I understand that you introduced a variety of methods which seemed to be very popular with the members...... you exercised a great deal of patience, giving each member personal time. That gesture was obviously much appreciated."
