Learn a new skill

Join me for a class – my place or yours?

Workshops are fun!

What could be better than  engaging in a creative activity in a beautiful setting with a glorious sea view and good company?

We are on the Rhins of Galloway, the handlebar shaped peninsula close to Scotland’s southern most tip, the Mull of Galloway.

No prior experience is required, I will guide you through the process at your own pace.

Can we get something in the diary?

If you don’t see any scheduled dates, I may be able to arrange a class on a date to suit you.  I’m happy to run the class just for you, if for example you are here on holiday and fancy a creative day.

Use this form to let me know what class or classes you’d like,  give me a specific date or range of dates when you’re free and I’ll get straight back to you.

Want me to come to you?

If you would like me to come and teach at your club, guild or venue, I’d love to hear from you.

I am a member of the Scottish Artists Union and use their guidelines to set my day rates. This generally works out cost effective for groups of 6 -12, depending on the location (ie, expenses).

I have also organised and taught at trade shows and retreats with up to 60 students per class, so would be happy to discuss arrangements if you are thinking of something on a larger scale.

Private Facebook Group

You can also join my Facebook Group where you can chat to other people who have been to my classes, or are planning to.
