Coronavirus has affected every corner of the world in almost every possible way. For me, my small business teaching creative classes had just started to gain momentum when everything changed. Now, having cancelled over 35 classes, I have adapted and created online pre recorded tutorials. These videos available for free you can watch from my YouTube channel at home in your own time at your own leisure over and over again - using the pause and rewind function when you need to. To accompany the classes I also created various KITS which provide pretty much everything you need to complete the tutorial. In fact, only a few simple things from home are usually needed - like water, soap & scrap paper. 

Things will be different now forever but I cant wait to get back to seeing you all my lovely creative students. Meanwhile find below a summary of each class along with links to both my shop and the tutorials. If you click TUTORIAL to go direct to my YouTube channel and SUBSCRIBE which allows you to see all my videos. Any questions or queries about these - or indeed any questions about my videos or tips or advice - please please please get in touch it would be lovely to hear from you. Stay creative & stay safe. Cx
