Workshops

Scroll down to see a list of workshops I am running at my home studio in Leicester (LE3 2EJ). The studio was purpose-built in 2013 and is situated just 2 miles from M1 Junction 21 or a short taxi ride from Leicester bus or train stations. I have limited space available for dinner, bed & breakfast at a nominal cost for those travelling from afar for whom budgets are limited – please email me for more details and availability.

Each workshop will have a maximum group size of six to eight and will include refreshments. Any items that you will need to bring with you will be listed in the workshop description, everything else will be provided. Photos are illustrative of the workshop and may not be exactly what you’ll end up with (unless otherwise stated).

For all workshops full payment is required in advance: use the email option to let me know you’d like to attend and how many places you’d like. I will then send you a PayPal money transfer request, or you may request bank details for a direct transfer. Alternatively, you can arrange to call into the Studio and pay by card. Terms and conditions are below the workshop list. If there are no places left, I’ll let you know and ask if you’d like to be put on a waiting list.

Click here to sign up for my occasional email newsletters promoting new workshops as they become available (opens in a new window). I now use MailChimp to manage my newsletter subscriptions – you can unsubscribe at any time by following the links in any of the emails. I won’t share your contact details with any one else.

Card and contactless payment facilities are now available at The Studio if you would like to pay for goods or future sessions or workshops.
