Workshops are held locally at Paulerspury Village Hall, Northamptonshire, a light, airy hall with plenty of parking & superb access, all you need to remember is a packed lunch.

Tea, coffee & squash are available throughout the day.

During weekend retreats, there will be a selection of Stephanie’s designs to choose from, hopefully, something for everyone!
