DAY CLASSES

You are welcome to join my day classes, either to learn how to weave, or to progress with skills you already have.

Classes are held on a Friday each week. 

Class times are:     am 9.30 to 12 noon,  pm 1.30 to 4pm, each day                        

Class members can take part in a joint project/exhibition with Joan Baxter and her students in Denmark and Ireland.   Participation in this project is voluntary.

As a member of the class you would be welcome to take part in this project.  

The classes are held in my studio at:
