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
If you see something on here you would like to try, but can’t attend a class, please contact me via the Contact page; I may be able to send you a kit with step-by-step instructions
For more photos please visit my Gallery page
If you are feeling creative you will find lots of free tutorials on my blog – they cover jewellery making, tatting, decorative painting, paper crafts and silk ribbon embroidery.
I am proud to be a DecoArt Outreach Blogger
