To continue to provide you with access to creative workshops through this time of lockdown, I have now recorded a number of my workshops as video tutorials which you can purchase and access online. In these I walk you through how to make the projects step by step just as I would in a traditional workshop, but you can complete them at your own pace in the comfort of your own home and at a time to suit you. You can see all of my online workshops here.

Fabric sculpting starter kits and workshop project kits are also available to purchase separately here.

Coronavirus / Covid-19 Update - 31st May 2020

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing restrictions in place to fight the coronavirus, I have now also cancelled all workshops due to take place in June and July 2020. If you would like to be kept up to date with when my workshops start up again, please make sure you are subscribed to my mailing list.​

Coronavirus / Covid-19 Update - 18th March 2020

As a result of the advice to avoid all non-essential social contact, I have taken the decision to cancel or postpone all of my workshops that were scheduled for March, April and May 2020.

All those who were booked onto any of these workshops have been contacted by email and offered the option to either swap to another workshop from June onwards or to have a full refund.

Going forward I am temporarily changing how you book onto my workshops.

My normal terms and conditions require full payment to be made at the time of booking to secure your place. From 18th March 2020, you will not be able to make a payment for workshops through my website. Instead you will book your place through a reservation without making payment.

As soon as I know whether a workshop will or won't be going ahead I will be in contact with everyone who has made a reservation. If the workshop is not going ahead, you will be given the option to transfer your reservation to another future workshop.

If it is decided that a workshop can safely go ahead without contravening the guidance in place at the time, then payment will be requested.

Obviously this is a very difficult and uncertain time at the moment for everyone, so please bear with me until business as usual can be resumed.

Workshop booking and cancellation policy

Payment for workshops must be made in full at the time of booking.


If you need to cancel your booking for any reason please contact me as soon as possible.  

Depending on the amount of notice given, you will be eligible for either a full or partial refund as follows:

Over 28 days before the workshop date - full refund given

Between 14 and 28 days before the workshop date - 75% refund given

Between 7 and 14 days before the workshop date - 50% refund given

Less than 7 days before the workshop date - no refund given

Any refund due will be paid to the original payee only and by the original payment method.


If you do not turn up for your workshop, you will not be eligible for a refund nor will you be eligible to move your booking to an alternative date.


In the unlikely event that a workshop has to be cancelled by Curiously Contrary, you will be offered the choice of a full refund or the opportunity to book onto an alternative workshop. You will be given as much notice as possible if a workshop has to be cancelled.


This policy may be subject to change so please check at the time of booking. The policy in place at the time of booking a place on a workshop will apply in the event of a cancellation - this will be included in your booking confirmation email.
