New Handwork Course

I am really excited about this new course, in order to share the skills I have learned over many years of teaching both Children and Adults Handwork skills. Everyone welcome!!Handwork Course Sept 2016

Crochet and Sock Knitting Courses 2016

In early January I will be continuing my Sock Knitting, and Crochet Classes at http://nestknitting.com

Beginners Crochet classes start on Wednesday the 13th of January at 19.00-20.30pm.

Sock Knitting classes start on Friday the 15th of January at 10-12pm.

My motto is that you can do a lot with very little. My intention with everything I teach is to give my pupils confidence, through teaching the basics very thoroughly. With these basic skills and confidence in how to use them, my students achieve a lot! They are also not afraid to make mistakes, after all, we learn more from our mistakes than anything else.

I hope with these courses to pass on my love of making, confidence and freedom to create things you want to make!
