The workshops are limited to a maximum of four - six  participants, dependant on the activity,  which enhances the experience and gives each student one-to-one teaching and personal attention. This also makes each workshop a great opportunity to share the experience with family and friends or learn alongside similar, like-minded people. 

The workshops can be a full day or morning only and the prices shown above cover all materials as well as tuition and refreshments. Please note that a non-refundable 20% deposit is required to procure a place. Please bring a packed lunch for a full day workshop.

All workshops are in  my beautiful  garden studio, a relaxing and inspiring space.

Clients travel from Retford, Lincoln, Scunthorpe, Doncaster, Brigg, Hull, Sheffield, Leeds and Stockwith to attend my many workshops. I have numerous returning clients who enjoy the tranquillity and calmness of my studio.

Bespoke sessions can be arranged to suit the needs of the individual.
