Gran taught me to knit when I was 7, and then to crochet a bit later. I learnt sewing from my mum and we were also taught at primary school, I made a rag doll for myself. I also learned macrame and mosaic at primary school. I did CSE needlework at secondary school, and we also did pottery.
My granddad bought a subscription to the Busy Needles part-work for me when I was about 10, so I’ve tried everything in those magazines at some point over the past 3 1/2 decades.
Self-taught artist, but I’ve done a few evening classes and a foundation art course (mainly so that I could practice life drawing which I love).
Did an evening class in glass/lead work. Self taught jewellery making (dad taught me to solder though).
Self-taught to spin, but that’s in the genes anyway.
Self-taught to make baskets and other items with willow withies.
