Teaching & Workshops

As a fully qualified and experienced teacher & lecturer of Art, Design & Textiles, I am able to offer a number of knitting workshops.

Teaching Background:
My main degree is in Textile Art, having graduated from Goldsmiths College, University of London, in 1999. From there, I achieved my teaching post grad (PGCE) in Art & Design at Goldsmiths, and spent a number of years teaching in mainstream schools, covering all areas of the creative curriculum but with a specialism in fashion, textiles and sculpture. I organised and taught extra curricular life drawing classes, as well as mini workshops in constructed textiles (knitting and weaving). Prior to my time at Goldsmiths College, I studied Industrial Textiles at Bolton University as well as a number of other shorter qualification courses, including pattern cutting and lacemaking.

As a professional teacher, all workshops are thoroughly planned and printed handouts are provided. Currently I am happy to provide the following workshops:

  • Hat Design workshop 
  • Increases & Decreases
  • Cast-on & Cast-off techniques
  • Turning Sideways

An outline of each course and my current rates can be downloaded below. Please note that from August 2014 my rates have changed; I am however still happy to discuss this, especially if you a local yarn shop with a smaller budget.

Please contact me should you wish to discuss any of these details further.
