On day one you will make the hare and on day two the jacket and add the finishing details to your hare.

I am a textile artist working mainly in textile construction but I love making all sorts of things using sewing. I have learnt from many sources throughout my life starting with my mother. Now that I am retired from the NHS I can draw on my experiences. I produce my own patterns combining old and new techniques. I love to work with beautiful natural fabrics like Harris Tweed and Abraham Moon tweed, silk, mohair and Viscose fur, 100%cotton in particular Liberty.

I enjoy teaching and like to share some of my wealth of knowledge with my students so you can enjoy producing lovely works of art too.

I have an adult teaching certificate, I am a qualified NHS professional (retired) and a qualified Aromatherapist.

To ensure the quality of your personal experience, group size will be limited to 8.

(Please note: a minimum number of 4 bookings is required in order for the session to go ahead)

From the welcome to the end of the day a lovely atmosphere of fun and collabaration. Clear, helpful advice and instruction. As new medium to me I will be continuing my journey in oil.
The lunch was great too. I cannot think of any better way to spend a day. Sara you are an inspiration to paint.
Many thanks to all the team.

Sara guided us through all the stages of painting a picture. I had never used oils before. I surprised myself at what I was able to produce. Sara got the right balance between teaching us lots of useful tips and getting us started and encouraging our own creativity. It was a really inspiring and relaxing day in beautiful surroundings and the lunches, coffee and cake were great too.
