Frequently asked questions

How long are the workshops?

Workshop times are a guideline only. People work at different speeds so they may run over or under depending on capabilities.

Where are the workshops held?

The workshops will be held at my home. We have 4 pugs, 3 geriatric and one neurotic! They will be wandering around in the garden. If this is a worry or a problem, please do let me know.

Will there be refreshments?

I like to provide refreshments, a slice of cake and cup of tea/coffee is always welcome during, and after some serious crafting!

When booking, there is an option to write a message. Please write your dietary requirements in the message box. If you forget, not to worry! After booking, feel free to contact me via the information provided at the bottom of the policy T&C page to let me know of your dietary requirements. Please state your name, workshop date and dietary requirement. If you let me know beforehand, I can make sure that something is arranged especially for you!
