My weaving workshops provide an opportunity to learn a new skill, to reconnect with nature, to unwind and  spend a day being creative....weaving requires focus and is relaxing at the same time and can be therapeutic!  To make something beautiful and useful is rewarding and fulfulling. We have fun too! 

They are usually held at the beautiful Felin Uchaf Centre 
All materials are supplied, and these are usually grown locally.  Refreshments are also provided in the characterful new Felin cafe building.


I can also run day or half day workshops for organised groups (5-8 people) please get in touch to discuss.  Examples include willow planters/birdfeeders, wool seat pads using a peg loom, garden supports or a foraging basket.

All my workshops require a minimum of 5 participants, and a maximum of 8.  I will ask for full payment 2 weeks prior to the workshop, which is non-refundable, unless there is someone who can take the place.
