I have been spinning and weaving inkle braids for more than 30 years.

My inkle workshops aim to get beginners up and running quickly. For more information please see the inkle section.

My spinning workshops are run on demand for groups of up to six people. See spinning section for details.

I give talks and demonstrations to groups including Guilds, societies, museums, and other interested organisations and am a member of the Association’s speakers list. Please contact me for further details.
