Hi I am Cath
I live in beautiful East Yorkshire, England and love crafting especially spinning. To use my stash I knit, crochet and weave. However like many crafters I am always exploring linked ideas so I sew, felt, dye and wood turn too.
I have created since I was a toddler. My first earnings was from selling home made dolls’ clothes at primary school. I sewed and knitted my way through college, hemming my dress on the bus to the graduation ball. I have cross-stitched and embroidered, created quilts and silk ribbon pictures. I was (and still am) a poly-crafter. My greatest love ad expertise is in spinning yarn, closely followed by wet felting.
I have organised courses for groups of friends for years, either with external tutors or teaching myself. I taught spinning informally on an individual basis too. Some friends were wanting to pay for my time, and complaining there were not many craft classes locally so I took deep breath and decided to convert our annexe to a crafting area and see if there was a demand for courses. I teach spinning and wet felting myself and work with great tutors to deliver other courses.
Thinking about our craft courses I decided that I wanted to
- continue to enjoy a personal relationship with courses members so classes are small, never more than six.
- work with talented tutors who had a positive approach to teaching
- be environmentally aware
- make the setting welcoming and relaxing
- provide a high quality, fun experience
I love having feedback and comments about things we can do to improve the experience, or new courses we could run.
