I am now fully booked for 2017 and am not taking any further bookings for workshops in 2018 while I concentrate on other projects. I will still be teaching at West Dean in 2017 & 2018 and giving talks related to my ongoing projects. I will be developing business support and training programmes which will be advertised soon. For 2017 – 18 I can offer talks on Criminal Quilts for groups in the Midlands as part of my project. I charge £100 plus travel. Please join my mailing list to keep up to date with my projects.
