We are excited to announce the second year of our new Handwork Course starting this September. The course started last year and has been a great success, with a wonderful and enthusiastic group of students. If you are interested in joining us in September please book early to avoid disappointment!
STARTING IN SEPTEMBER 2016 : HOW TO TEACH CHILDREN CRAFT!!
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!!
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!
I am working in the lovely Three Seed garden, teaching crafts to children. Last night we made bread on sticks over an open fire which was great fun, and very tasty. A wonderful way to celebrate Bon Fire Night.
I am involved in a wonderful new project, which of course involves teaching crafts to children. In the process I hope to pass on a few skills and have lots of fun making things the children can use and give away as gifts.
Starting next Tuesday evening at Steiner House, I will be teaching Fair Isle knitting. I have always thought that whilst learning new things you should make something useful you can take home with you, so we will be making hats!
Below you will find the course description. Please e’mail me to book a place on the course.
