Having taught and organised courses for friends, in 2019 I started Beechwood crafts, where I teach spinning and felting and have fabulous tutors who teach other courses, including needle felting, leatherwork and lino-printing.

Dee reviewed: Beginning spinning

"This course was a brilliant introduction to setting up the wheel and spinning with a variety of fleeces and types of wool. Cath helped with washing and spinning a sample of fleece I had been given. The small group enabled Cath to give specific guidance and teaching individually. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. I had a very enjoyable and informative day and strongly recommend to any beginner spinner. "

Beechwood Crafts responded:

"Thank you Dee, It was a real pleasure to have you on the course, and to see your face as a few tweaks to your wheel meant that it worked beautifully. best wishes Cath "

Gayle reviewed: Spinning lessons one to one

"I had an hour’s face-to face lesson with Cath yesterday and loved it. Cath is a brilliant teacher and has a lovely calm, patient nature. She told me more than just the basics and I left with my first skein of spun wool (small but perfectly formed). She has certainly aroused my interest in spinning and I was on a high for the rest of the day. Thank you Cath and hope to see you again to further improve my skills."

Ursula reviewed: Spinning lessons one to one

"I had an hour's one-to-one lesson as an introduction to spinning on a wheel. The lesson more than met my requirements. Cath is a patient and responsive teacher who was generous with her time. She is very supportive and really enthused me to continue my spinning journey in earnest."

Jude reviewed: Beginning spinning

"My second course with Cath and, again, I thought her teaching was excellent. The day was well organised and we had plenty of opportunity to practise spinning as well as learning more about setting up the wheels etc. We also had the opportunity to try the different wheels that Cath has in her workroom (very useful if you are considering buying a wheel). I would certainly recommend this course."
