Welcome to
Smallbeans - for your home and your coat!

Here you can find links to my crafting and teaching blogs, Etsy shop and a variety Creative Textiles courses I teach with MK Adult Education

Make Me Relax - a day for women to relax have creative space has now happened 6 times since April 2014 and I’ve got two more planned for this year before Christmas.

I shall also be planning next years dates before long.

There is a
Facebook page and a blog where I will be posting photos and updates on the days.

There are plenty of Adult Education creative textile courses that I hope will run from September
Here are the links to the
City & Guilds Level 1 page and the further techniques for those of you who have completed the Level1 or equivalent.
There will be a
Screen printing day on the 3rd of October
Printing for textiles an introduction, two short days looking at 4 simple printing techniques suitable for both textiles and paper printing
Silk painting is planned for February 2016, a very calming day working slowly to produce striking designs.
Next March I hope the
shibori and indigo dyeing day will run again, we had great fun stitching and dying fabrics with instant and spectacular results!

If you would like information about any courses email me and I will endeavour to reply asap.

My Smallbeans creations can now be found in the lovely village of Olney, to the North of Milton Keynes in a delightful shop called
Afterglow Diana sells a great range of up-cycled and pre-loved items from makers in the local area, there are always different things to have a look at and Olney is a great place for an afternoon mooch!

There is lots going on, hopefully something to interest you along the way.

Thanks for your time
