On street parking is available. At weekends when everyone tends to be at home street parking outside might be difficult but there are street off Sleetmoor Lane where you would be able to park.

Everything is provided for the workshop, including gloves, apron and fun! I also provide snacks and drinks. If the workshop is late morning or over the lunch period please feel free to bring along lunch. If you are doing a Powertex workshop I advise to wear sleeves that are able to be pushed up out of the way.

Short and sweet answer - NO. You do not need any experience whatsoever. I will guide you through all stages of your project and you will be amazed how your creation will look. I work with you so no-one goes home unhappy with their project.

There is one step over a 6 inches high sill into the work area. The toilet is upstairs. Most of the workshops need a degree of hand dexterity. There are no other problems that could affect the disabled.

I like to give clients as much time as they need to finish their project. Some people will work less fast than other people. By working from home I am able to accommodate those who might need a little extra time, If you need to finish exactly on time please let me know.

I have an elderly cat (17years) who is very timid. We may not see her at all through the whole workshop. Sometimes she will wander through to take a look but she will not bother anyone.
