Textilia offers a variety of workshops from taster adult workshops, to young people's workshops during school holidays and Saturday mornings.
I am always happy to accommodate bespoke workshops both in the studio or at private venues.
I have portable teaching looms that are ready warped for each workshop.
nurturing creative flair
We spend so much time in a fast world, and this applies to school life and our children too. I know how important it is to make sure our children achieve their full potential and as teachers we strive to achieve this every working day! We have very little time for learning a craft, developing a new skill, nurturing a creative flair and I very much see my workshops as a supplement to the brilliant work that is already happening in schools and colleges, often with limited time and resources available in the curriculum.
My workshops are very versatile. They can take place at my teaching space at Textilia, Lion House, Muspole Street, Norwich. My studio is a calm and bright airy place to work in the heart of Norwich’s textile heritage area. On the other hand, because my teaching looms are so portable and compact I can easily bring my workshops to venues such as youth groups, schools, home teaching groups, art groups, holiday clubs, etc.
