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. At Il Magpie Craft Workshops in Winchester I provide activities to inspire the busiest of you to bring creativity back into your life.

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.

You can join a craft workshop at "The Nest", just outside Winchester, Hampshire. There are 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.

If you live in Hampshire and want a more relaxed craft workshop simply choose the craft you want to try and host your own "Crafternoon" or "Crafterevening". These relaxed craft workshops take place in your own home or venue for up to five people. They happen at a time that's convenient for you. I bring the expertise, materials and kit you need. You bring the company!

Alternatively, drop into one of my "Yarning" groups to informally socialise while you knit or crochet. Beginners are welcome and a drink is included in the price.

Drop Into A “Yarning” Session For Yarn Centred Socialising

Drop In At A Yarning Session

Yarning is an informal group that meets every two weeks in the Sacher and Strudel Patisserie in Shawford, Hampshire.

You can bring along your own yarn projects (knitting or crochet we don’t discriminate!) and work in comfort whilst chatting with like minded people.

Host Your Own “Crafternoon”

Looking to spend quality time with your friends or hosting a celebration such as a Hen Night or Baby Shower? The magpie loves to travel! I will bring all the materials and equipment that you need for your chosen activity to you. Learn in the comfort of your own home with your own choice of classmates. Most of the workshops can travel. Just decide what you want to do from my crafting canon and get in touch to book a date. Morning, afternoon or evening. Weekend or “school” night I can work with you to accommodate your schedule.
