Courses and Workshops

Every year I teach a variety of workshops and courses.

These range from individual tuition to organised courses and everything in between including taster experiences.  My workshops and courses are generally suitable for all abilities of stitching and textile enthusiast including beginners from the age of 12 upwards.

My courses develop skills in design, use of colour and materials, stitching and embroidery, but fundamentally are relaxing and enjoyable experiences for all participants. The following courses give an example of some of the experiences I can offer – and the costs involved.  However, like my products my courses and workshops can be tailored to suit the needs of my customers – so please contact me to discuss what you are interested in.

HandStitched Scottish Textile Postcard Workshop

Oyster Catcher Postcard

I can offer one or two day workshops for up to 8 people in the very pleasant environment of Underhill Cottage, where using your own inspiration I will guide you as you use a variety of techniques  to make and take away a memory of Scotland in the form of a beautiful, personal, hand stitched Scottish Textile postcard.

You will learn a little about my favourite heritage fabrics of Scotland, how they are made, their use and how they inspire me in my work.

Two day workshops

A weekend workshop will give you the time  to  explore your own inspiration and develop your practical and creative skills. Students should return home with a finished postcard of their own design. Materials and equipment will be provided as well as refreshments and a light lunch each day.  Costs £150 per person for  2 days.

One day workshops  

If you are short of time and would like to be inspired, my one day workshop will give you the opportunity to create your own postcard based on one of my designs, while still developing your practical and creative skills. Materials and equipment will be provided as well as refreshments and a light lunch. Costs £85 per person.

Workshops can be run with a minimum of 2 people.

10.00 am – 4.30pm each day

If you would like to book please contact me to discuss your preferred dates.

Both of these workshops can be combined with a stay in Underhill cottage. Contact me for availability and prices.
