Maker's bio

I have crafted all my life, from sewing and knitting dolls clothes at primary school, to spinning , weaving, felting and dyeing over the last 10 years. 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.

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."

Beechwood Crafts responded:

" Thank you Jude, It has been a pleasure to help you on your spinning journey. best wishes Cath "

Liz reviewed: Beginning spinning

"An excellent introduction to this traditional craft. Welcoming and relaxed environment. Have I bought a wheel as a result? No but would seriously consider it if I wasn’t able to get out and about as much."
