‘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


Distance Learning



Distance learning is a way for me to teach those who cannot access my classes in person.

The next distance class is my ever popular goldwork bluebell design. Over 8 weeks the class will cover everything from transferring the design, silk shading, working the padding, couching, plunging, chipping, pearl purl outlines, cutwork and s-ing. All of these techniques will be taught in the traditional way.

The generous materials pack will contain hand dyed felt fabric along with all of the gold metals and stranded silks required for the piece.

Each week the videos relating to the class will be added to a dropbox folder, these will be accessed through a direct link sent to you via email. I encourage you to send pictures of your stitching along with any questions as they arise.

You can secure your place on the class by paying half now with the balance due before the kits are dispatched or you can pay in full at the time of booking.

Starting on 30th September; the class will last 8 weeks and will cost £250.00 including the kit, however you can also pay £125.00 deposit with the balance due before kits are dispatched. The last day to register is 30th August and kits will be dispatched from 11th September.  BOOK NOW



‘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

Residential Summer School

August 2017 will see Jen’s Summer School running to the Springhead Trust site in the heart of the Dorset countryside. As well as a week of embroidery tuition, with a choice of projects to choose from, there will be unrestricted access to the beautiful private gardens.

The Summer School will be running from Monday 7th to Friday 11th August 2016.

Accommodation is a mixture of single rooms, twin rooms and dormitories, with comfortable recreation rooms to enjoy. All accommodation is booked on a first come basis and if you wish to attend the classes only, this is also an option.

The residential school costs £425 with a deposit of £100 due at the time of booking. The outstanding balance is due 12 weeks before the summer school starts. Breakfast and lunch are included in the cost. The local tea room offers cooked breakfast and there are also many places locally for an evening meal. However there is also a large, well appointed kitchen should you wish to cook yourself. Any materials and kits are charged at the end of the week.

To book please contact Jen on


‘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
