‘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

‘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
