weaving, spinning, carding and more!

I wouldn't be a very good maker if I didn't share all my hot tips and tricks now would I? So I've created this page with all the resources you need to get weaving, spinning and carding in no time. 


I wrote a book!

I spent the whole of 2019 working on my first and only book baby and can I tell you, I didn't hold back. 

I wrote everything you need to know about weaving looms and tools, warp yarns and weft yarns. I wrote extensive guides on warping the loom, various weaving techniques and how to create perfect tension in your work.

What's more you ask? I also created 18 beautiful projects to adorn your home with, plus how to make a DIY weaving loom.

Private Lessons & Workshops

I'm based in Newcastle, Australia and usually run workshops at least once a month locally. As you can imagine, that's a little hard right now with the current COVID-19 situation we have found ourselves in. So, I'm taking a bit of a break for the rest of 2020. My husband and I are about to start building a new studio in our backyard in Lambton where we will both be able to work from AND hold workshops and private lessons in the future. We are very much looking forward to sharing more on this with you soon.
