Amabel South West The Crafty Hen Workshop

About Me

It's great fun helping groups of friends to enjoy creating something they may not have thought was possible. Taking the fear out, and putting the fun into crafting. It's fantastic to see people proudly showing off what they've made, and hearing the laughter whilst they are making it!

My Favourite Things

Quilting, photography, sketching, poetry, walking in the Forest of Dean and having fun with my three beautiful boys.

Area of Expertise

Textiles and Ceramics - I enjoy experimenting with textiles and fabric textures. I don't like to follow the rules of how to work with fabrics, preferring to make up my own! I did a degree at the University of Bath in Ceramics.

Favourite Session

Fascinator Making

Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Gloucester, Cirencester, Cheltenham, Cotswolds, Hereford, Ross on Wye
