I love to teach and share with you but I can’t always be at your guild or conference.

With that in mind, I’ve developed the next, best way to inspire you. So….invite me into your home or studio to learn new ideas and techniques.

My workshops are multi-lesson formats that combine PDF documents to print out – such as dye recipes and resources – and videos for you to watch and learn.  You can watch them at your own pace, download them for future reference and work alongside me or take notes with a cup of coffee beside you! There will be opportunity for you to ask questions, post pictures and to meet other students and chat.

Each workshop will be available  to you forever and you will be able to keep the links to the videos or download the videos for anytime in the future. Browse through the workshops below and sign up! You are welcome to email me with any questions.

I hope you will join me on this exciting new adventure!

Squiggle, Line & Dot – Mark Making

In this workshop we will use a variety of methods to create marks on both paper and fabric. Using unusual tools, inks and paints we explore line, pattern and composition that we can use as personal symbols and our own unique language. We can combine this work with other fabrics and papers for presentation as books, work for further exploration or as finished pieces.
