Following the closure in November 2023 of my small shop in Braidwood, I am now available again to travel to you to teach my workshops.

Classes coming soon:

JULY 2024

Come along to the Craft and Quilt Fair in Sydney (ICC Darling Harbour), from Wednesday July 3 to Saturday July 6, 2024. More information about the Craft and Quilt Fair mini classes can be found at their website:

I will be running a mini make-and-take class: FELT BAUBLE PENDANT, at 10:30am each day of the Craft and Quilt Fair in Sydney this year.

Cost is just $6 per person. The kit contains one felt ball, 1 metre of waxed cotton cord, plus basic instructions. During the class you will borrow a suitable needle, and use your choice from my selection of appropriate threads to stitch onto your felt ball. The necklace will be completed using either two sliding knots, or a clasp made using a shank button.

This class is run under the auspices of ATASDA  ( ). Bookings for this class will be taken at the ATASDA stand at the Fair (Stand: Guild-E).



Also at this year’s Craft and Quilt Fair in Sydney (ICC Darling Harbour), from Wednesday July 3 to Saturday July 6, 2024, I will be offering a FREE make-and-take class at the ATASDA stand (stand: Guild-E). Class times/days TBA. (NB: there will be two set times for this class, probably on the Thursday and Friday, but if I am at the ATASDA stand with some time up my sleeve, I am happy to get you into string-making at that time!)

This class is called STRINGING YOU ALONG, and I will be showing you how to make string from recycled strips of fabric. In the class time (approximately one hour or less), you will make a length of string, which you will turn into a simple necklace or bracelet.  I will have some examples of things I have made using my hand-made string, to give you some ideas for creative activities at home!

Any questions about these two mini classes, email me at:



In August 2024 we again have the wonderful Arts Muster at Huskisson (Jervis Bay) on the south coast of NSW. Dates for this year’s Arts Muster are Saturday August 24 and Sunday August 25, 2024.

This year I will be offering my LITTLE COILED BASKETS one-day workshop on Saturday August 24. Bookings and more information can be found on the Arts Muster website:

I have been teaching how to do coiling (generally using lovely coloured yarns – colour is my thing!) for many years. Once you have learned the basics (which you can do in this class) you can go on to try many variations of coiling. I mostly using this technique to make sculptural forms, but of course you can also make baskets, bowls and even jewellery!
