As "grown ups", living our busy lives we forget that expressing our creativity is one of the things humans were put on this planet to do.

EVERYONE is creative, but not using your creativity makes it rusty. My aim is to wake up your creativity and watch the rest of your life benefit from it.

In my little corner of Winchester I provide activities to inspire the busiest of you to bring creativity back into your life.


Join a workshop at "The Nest", just outside Winchester, Hampshire. There is a wide variety of different crafts to choose from and workshops are deliberately planned to allow ANYONE to produce a result they can be proud of.

Or choose the craft you want to try and host your own "Craft Party" for up to five people, in your own home, at a time that is convenient for you. I bring the expertise, materials and kit you need. You bring the company!

No matter what the craft, you will work in a small group with plenty of support through the whole process.

Upcoming Workshops @ The Nest
