February courses at the Sewing Shed.

One of the items that have been made at the Sewing Shed is this beautiful bowl like shape. I love the feeling of fragility that it resembles... It is actually a toil! believe it or not, but what a nice one. Has anyone got any idea what it actually is? If so just let me know here.


Fun with Wool

Come along to this creative and fun gathering. Bring any unused and unwanted woollen items like jumpers, cardigans etc. Learn and inspire each other whilst transforming them into something new and wearable or a decorative piece. Pick up some new ideas, share skills, be part of a lovely group and hang out with like minded minds.

A no-tuition gathering. Please bring some money to cover costs like heat, electricity use of machines/equipment and drinks. Recommended amount is 5 pounds but let this not be the thing that stops you. Monday evening 2nd February 7 till 9 pm. Just send an email here to confirm you are coming.


'Thank you so much for a beautiful two and a half hours!  I always arrive feeling nervous and go away feeling proud and happy. What a gift you give us - with your calm and generous capabilities.'
