‘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

Private lessons

Jen offers a range of different private lessons from one to one sessions taught in person from her Wimborne studio to online one to one sessions via Skype or zoom.

The first session costs £90, 1.5 hours of online tuition plus 0.5 hours for class preparation, additional time or follow up sessions they are charged at £45 per hour. I would need to see your project in advance so I can can plan for the session; in this case your picture, planned stitches and placement etc. This means we don’t waste time during the session with me looking over the project for the first time.

‘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

2022 Whitework

This coming year will see an ambitious whitework project being worked across the year. 10 day classes over 12 months will allow plenty of time for the essential homework to be stitched to allow the project to progress between sessions. This image shows how you piece will look partway through term two. 

 

  • Term one will consist of 3 day classes dedicated to pulledwork. Pulledwork is the grounding for much of this design and needs to be in position before most of the more complex elements of this Whitework design can be stitched.
    • Term one classes run from 10am – 4pm Friday 21st Jan, 25th Feb, 25th March
  • Term two will consist of 4 day classes and will focus on the surface embroidery and layering fabric. This design has many areas of padded satin stitch, trailing, ladder stitch, long and short as well as other decorative stitches to add detail. 
    • Term two classes run from 10am – 4pm Friday 22nd April, 27th May, 24th June, 22nd July
  • Term 3 will consist of 3 day classes, these classes will focus on drawn thread techniques and cutting away areas of fabric to expose single layers of linen and embroidered net. 
    • Term three classes run from 10am-4pm on Friday 23rd Sept, 21st Oct, 25th Nov

All classes will be run online via zoom, these sessions will be recorded and these recordings plus additional supporting materials will be accessible via a dedicated online teaching environment.

‘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
