Mary is available to give talks to interested groups. Following the changes to Covid-19 restrictions Mary is able to offer a one hour virtual talk via Zoom, or face to face talks, if combined with a workshop booking, or as a stand alone within a reasonable travelling distance from West Sussex. This will include a PowerPoint presentation and a ‘show and tell’ of work. Time will be available for participants to converse with Mary and ask questions.
Talks booked by: Embroiderers’ Guilds, Weavers, Spinners & Dyers Guilds, WI, Textile Groups
Every student has their own reasons for attending workshops, and in my experience as a tutor, they can be varied. I like to teach through demonstration, then support and encourage students as they work independently. I hope to inspire, encourage and share my enthusiasm, whilst aiming to meet the needs of each student on an individual basis.
