Covid-19 Update: Due to current circumstances most of my upcoming workshops and events are either cancelled or postponed. You can keep up to date with what I'm doing over on my social media accounts or by signing up for my newsletter. Stay safe everyone!

Bird Embroidery Kits

I've been working on some hand embroidery kits that are now available in my Folksy shop. They contain everything you need to make your own stitched bird, including fabric printed with my original bird designs. 


I'm delighted to share with you that I've been commissioned by The Stove Network in Dumfries to create an installation in the town centre as part of their 'Elsewhere' project, a step on from their Homegrown project. More information soon!
