Welcome to my courses page. I run a range of workshops in a variety of places. These include my very own studio/ gallery based in Sheriff Hutton, North of York. My studio is modern and contemporary and based in the heart of the beautiful village.

My workshop page will be regularly updated but if there is a particular workshop you would be interested in please let me know. I also do bespoke workshops for 6 people if you would like to do these with a group of friends.

The vast majority of my workshops will require you to be confident (but not an expert) on your own sewing machine. Some of which need to use free machine embroidery. If you dont know if your machine has access for this facility, please still get in touch and I can guide you through finding out what we can do to help. Most of the classes will have materials supplied but I do ask you bring your own thread on the day.

There is a lot going on in the village with its very own deli and a pub that does amazing meals. We have a beautiful church, our very own castle steeped in history and lots of lovely walks. There is a wide range of unusual accommodation in the area so please let me know if you plan to stay over. Please see seperate page for more info.......

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
