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. For online payments, click on the ‘book now’ button to be transferred to my online scheduler where you will be able to see prices and availability. Online prices have a small surcharge to cover processing costs. 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 for a session, please email if you would like to be put on a waiting list.
