‘I have done several classes with Jen. They are well structured and organised. Her instructions (written and verbal) are clear and all materials are provided. Importantly for me the atmosphere is relaxed and fun is had by all’.- Sally Uphill, Bath
I have so enjoyed this series of lessons, wonderfully informal, relaxed and cheery. I am very pleased with how my project has progressed. It is the piece of work I feel most proud of and it is certainly the one I have learnt the most while stitching.- Susan W

Distance Learning

The first distance class of 2020 returns to my great love of silk shading, this time with an autumnal leaf design. 

The class will run for 8 weeks and this class  will cover how to tackle difficult angle changes, complex turnovers along with subtle colour changes in a limited palette of greens. 


***  Update….. this will be the only distance class running in 2020 due to other exciting projects happening behind the scenes. Book now to avoid disappointment ….. ***

This class will start on the 22nd March 2020 with kits being dispatched from Wednesday 4th March. The class costs £195 and can be booked here


‘I enrolled in Jen’s online course looking forward to stretching my blackwork knowledge. I found the course well developed, well structured and very enjoyable. One had room to adapt the colour scheme to reflect ones preferences and Jen was most helpful in sourcing different threads. Instructions are clear and each stage well thought out with excellent video tutorials.’- Ann Carmichael, Scotland
‘Jen is an amazing teacher! I was lucky enough to spend summer school 2015 at Springhead on my first course with Jen, she is friendly, made me feel welcome, relaxed and extremely comfortable, allowing me to ask as many questions as I needed. Jen has a huge wealth of knowledge and is an exquisite embroiderer, she is happy to spend time demonstrating and explaining complex techniques to you. I would highly recommend to all! I am looking forward to my next class with her!!’- Caroline Jean, Dorset
