Our classes and workshops are designed for you to develop and acquire new skills, whilst enjoying the company of others who share a common passion for needle craft.  Our locally based tutors with a wide variety of skills will enjoy sharing their knowledge and experience with you.

Classes and workshops are held throughout the week, with morning, afternoon and evening sessions. Whether you are a complete beginner, a little rusty, or wanting to learn new techniques to add to years of experience, the classes are tailored to suit attendee’s abilities.
