Maker's bio

Hello to you, who believes that making things with your hands is fun, therapeutic and hugely useful in today’s world. I have been running craft workshop for over ten years. I have had dozens of tutors here at the Blacksmith Shop Crafts sharing their skills and inspiring others to try different crafts. Hundreds of participants have benefited from this and many of them come over and over again. My sewing and knitting groups are well attended. I feel so happy to be working in crafts.

Hilary Leach reviewed: Beginner and improver sewing club in East Yorkshire

"This is an excellent course. I have been attending since last summer and made several items of clothing and a few soft furnishings. Anna is very patient, helpful and inspiring. She has a wealth of knowledge and equipment which can can utilise. I have certainly learned a great deal and feel more confident using my sewing machine and tackling projects at home. Always enjoy the chat, cake and coffee too."

Jean Lewis reviewed: Needle Felting

"What a thoroughly enjoyable workshop. Sandy was enthusiastic and it was catching. I even came home with something that looked like a fox. It was my first time doing needle felting and I loved. It was a lovely setting and the atmosphere was relaxed, fun and friendly. The time just flew by. I also have to mention Anna's cakes - to die for !!! I had determined to learn at least one new thing a year and this was just what I wanted. I hope to come to some more. Sandy did warn it could become addictive. I cannot thank Sandy and Anna enough."
