Paivatar Weaving Studio Workshops

I will be offering beginner and intermediate classes and workshops in hand weaving, hand spinning, feltmaking and dyeing. All workshops will be held in my studio in Chichester, UK. Class sizes will be small so that I can offer individual instruction. Please contact me if you are interested and would like more information about upcoming workshops.
