Those of you who have known me for a while, will know that my pride and joy is The Little Green Shed, my 20ft by 10ft studio. It's remarkably well equipped, but of course, it's usually only me who uses it. I thought that that was a bit of a waste, and the idea of workshops in the Little Green Shed was born. The idea is simple; come and learn a new skill, or develop an existing one, using my equipment and with my help. I supply most of the materials as well as the equipment, and a light lunch is included. I can take up to four people at a time, and the total cost is £120.
These workshops are bespoke; if you want to try something out for the first time, I will design an introductory workshop; if you are more skilled, tell me what you want to concentrate on, and I will design something to meet your specific needs. And if you're not sure what you want... email me to talk about it!
Click here for pictures of a workshop I did with one group..they had lots of fun, and I'm sure you would, too!

PS The Little Green Shed is in Longham, near Dereham, Norfolk (UK); if you come from further afield, but want to come for a weekend in glorious rural surroundings, there is plenty of good, local accommodation, including the village pub, just round the corner!
