Embroidery tutor and textile artist. I teach all levels from beginners to City and Guilds. I have taught at Museums such as The Bowes Museum, The Quilters' Guild Museum, The Mercer Art Gallery and Museum, at shops such as Spinning Jenny, Samuel Taylors at Embsay, MKC (Benina) in Leeds and for a variety of groups including branches of the Embroideres' Guild. I am a member of the Embroiderers' Guild and the Quilters Guild, and Textilia, an exhibiting group of textile artists.
I have also taught formal courses at Harrogate College and Craven College.
