Canons Ashby National Trust, is a tranquil Tudor manor house set in rare terraced gardens features grand rooms, stunning tapestries and Jacobean plasterwork.  In the historic parkland you can catch glimpses of early medieval landscapes, while a wander through the priory church reveals the story of the canons of Canons Ashby.


The beautiful Coach House Shop stocks a range of National Trust homewares as well as unique products made by local artists.  They now stock my exclusive 'Canons Ashby in the Spring' felt & stitch picture as a greeting card, as well as a selected range of my other popular greetings cards.

Due to popular demand, I have just added my new Felt Picture Making Kits to my website for you to buy!


Complete with everything you need to start making your very own felt pictures, these make an ideal gift for the creative person in your family, or a treat for yourself!


This Workshop is for those who have already done a Felt Picture Making Workshop with me previously.


This Advanced Workshop allows you to build on the first one by introducing new fibres into pictures to add additional texture, colour and sparkle. Working with a picture of your own choice, you will build up the image with merino wool as before, but this time will be able to add further embellishments such as silks, bamboo tops, Angelina fibres and even gold leaf! You are welcome to bring any fibres you have at home and I can advise you on the best way of adding them into your picture.


I will also give you a demonstration of how to use free machine embroidery and needle felting on your picture to enhance it even further.


You will leave with your own embelished felt picture that you can further enhance with stitching at home if you wish.
