Hello lovely you, I’m Jacqueline & amongst other things I make bespoke soft furnishings & bears. I also teach these skills on various workshops in & around York. I have oodles of creative, beautiful ideas to share during 1-2-1 tuition & small group workshops. So, if you love nothing better than to disappear into your creative bubble with likeminded people in a beautiful spot & learn a new skill, then please get in touch.
Beautiful homes start here & there's always room for one more bear.

"I recently attended Jacqueline's gathered and pleated lampshade making course, held in her beautiful home in Ebberston, and what a fabulous two days it was. Jacqueline is so warm and friendly. She was an excellent teacher, explaining and demonstrating everything to us very clearly. She also provided lots of helpful advice prior to the course. I now feel very confident putting my new lampshade-making skills to use. Lunch each day was delicious - all homemade with ingredients from Jacqueline's own garden. Everything about this course was an absolute delight and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I have since booked onto a further course with Jacqueline and I can't wait to go back. "
" Thank you for your lovely review Val. You are a delight to teach and l look forward to working with you again and getting creative with lampshade designs. Kind regards Jacqueline "
"A thoroughly excellent course, I couldn't have enjoyed it more! I learnt so much from Jacqueline, my teacher, and have gone away brimming with confidence and enthusiasm.
I can't recommend this course enough!
" Thanks for your lovely review Julie, you were a pleasure to teach."
"Jacqueline is amazing! Such a talented woman! Jacqueline teaches with such patience and kindness. I had a one to one class with Jacqueline and it was definitely worth it. I really wanted to learn this technique and initially thought I could learn it myself through youtube videos but you definitely cannot. There is so much more to it, it takes time and all the techniques to make a perfect and professional lampshade you will only learn from an expert like Jacqueline. I would definitely recommend this course with Jacqueline to anyone wanting to learn as it is an amazing skill to have."
" Thank you Catherine for your lovely review. You were a pleasure to teach and your textile ideas ... all things natural with traditional techniques ... so exciting. I look forward to seeing your own collections at a trade shows in the years to come."
