I enjoy making beautiful things and love helping people make beautiful things for themselves. You choose the colours and materials and we’ll take it from there. One to one tuition is available, or you can learn as part of a small group.
Need lovely cakes for a special occasion? I can help you make fondant decorations, in the comfort of your own home, that you can use to decorate your own cupcakes or a larger cake. Fondant decorations can be made well in advance of the event – so no pressure on the big day. From September, I’ll also be offering a limited number of cake decorating classes at Fabric HQ.
Would you love to make a quilt but don’t know where to start? Don’t worry! With a little help, anyone can make a quilt. I am running a series of classes at Fabric HQ which will give you all the skills you need.
