 SILK RIBBON ROSES

Thank you for visiting my site. This is where I share photos of the various crafts I enjoy doing and teaching.

I offer one-to-one or group tuition in the Edinburgh area, but can also travel teach throughout the UK and beyond.

I also teach on cruise ships and have had the pleasure of working for Cunard, Fred Olsen, Saga and Cruise & Maritime.

In addition to the above I am the organiser of a Meetup group called Craft in Edinburgh. We are a group of craft lovers who have regular meets and workshops and share ideas.

I was privileged to be a guest on BBC’s The Beechgrove Garden and on Scottish Television.  My designs have been featured in the press

Although some of these crafts may look difficult, especially to a beginner, most are achievable with hands-on teaching and lots of practice. Many of my students are total novices who surprise themselves with their results

The crafts I teach include:

SILK RIBBON EMBROIDERY

CROCHET

DECORATIVE PAINTING

JEWELLERY MAKING

TATTING

GIFT WRAPPING
