Talks and workshops for groups
After 12 years of running hundreds of workshops and talks, I am cutting down on these to concentrate on other projects and community work. I have limited availability for new workshop bookings in 2017 and 2018 but may be able to offer talks and workshops closely related to ongoing projects including Criminal Quilts which would be particularly relevant to quilting groups and history groups in the Midlands.
I charge £90 for talks, plus travel. I mostly only give talks in the Midlands / one-hour travel time from Leicester unless it relates to another project I am working on around the UK. Please contact me to discuss.
Creative textile workshops start at £235 per day plus travel and materials. Midlands only for one day workshops but further afield may be possible for longer workshops where accommodation is supplied.
