Hi there,

You don't usually hear from me so frequently! This is just a little update, as I have a busy month, with lots of exciting events ahead.

I hope you have had a good Easter. I had fun running a beach-themed weaving workshop for Lewes Climate Hub, on Easter Saturday. I've also been out for some lovely walks with family and friends.

This weekend I'm showing in a Spring Fair, with Lewes Creatives. On Saturday 15th 10am - 5pm at St John sub Castro Church, Lewes. Do come along if you can. 

There are still some places on my Spring Blossom Weaving Workshop at The Paxton Centre, in Crystal Palace, London, on Saturday 22nd April.
**I am offering a £10 discount ((£40 instead of £50) for subscribers who book directly with me. To take advantage of this offer email me**
This will be a fun workshop, where you will take home your own blossom weaving. Limited places. 
See below for more details.
