I have crafted in some form from a very young age. Starting with tapestry and embroidery. I then worked in the Health Service until I retired on health grounds in 2018. During that time I developed a passion for glass and mixed media and ran workshops from home until I created the venue at Bridge House Marina in August 2022. My aim is to encourage arts and crafts to be used to aid mental well-being and encourage friendships.
i am happy to do talks to groups about myself, the shop , and crafting. Just get in touch.
