Workshop Experiences... 

“Thank you so very much for today's workshop   I am absolutely knocked out by what can be achieved in 4 hours.  From a standing start you showed me how to use the resources to create a 'cloth' that could be used for many things.  Your patience and supportive approach made the workshop into a relaxing, creative experience.  My lampshade is wonderful, even if I say so myself.  Thank you for introducing me to another crafting medium."

Thank you for a wonderful workshop today at your home. Using mulberry silk, nettle fibre and botanical inclusions from my garden I was able to create a beautiful delicate standard lampshade.  The whole process was so relaxing and absorbing with a fantastic result."
