Hi I’m Gillian, I am a craft enthusiast and I enjoy the whole process; I hope to offer something a bit different for beginners to advanced abilities. I love all arts and crafts and have dabbled in many but there are still others to try! Even before upcycling was a ‘thing’ I was using old and unwanted items in my projects.
Running my own small business, I am part of local craft cooperatives, attend handmade craft markets and have started up workshops which is something I always wanted to do. I love showing others what they can achieve. My WI always build two crafty evenings into the programme and over the last few years I have led on these; they are always great fun.
I do have a guilty pleasure for knitting character tea cosies which started in lockdown and it’s still going strong; many more patterns and not enough time!
