Testimonials

I really enjoy classes with Maria, very well prepared and resourced. Plenty of advice, ideas and encouragement. Allows you to develop your own ideas with help, rather than sticking to a rigid formula. Lovely atmosphere in class, supporting each other and sharing ideas. I've done felting, free machine embroidery, lino cut etc. Missed them so much in lockdown, so glad to be returning

I have learned so much from Maria's classes. The amount of preparation she puts into samples and instructions makes the projects achievable for all. The sessions are friendly and sociable and the students support and encourage each other. The studio is a joy to be in and the skills and confidence gained is worth every penny. And I must give a nod to the chocolate brownies!

Print, Free Stitch & Feltmaking Classes

Print, Stitch and Felt making Classes and Workshops run from a large airy studio. Sessions are generally for adults with some child friendly sessions. As the situation changes I'm adapting by using zoom sessions, developing pre recorded sessions with kits and adopting heavy restrictions on the number of students in the workshop.
