My Little Vintage Workshop...


Hello my lovelies!

As many of you  know, as well as appearing on Create & Craft TV as a guest presenter 
I run Tilly's Vintage Workshop and teach a variety of craft workshops. craft events and 1:1 tuition...
So, as a Monday morning treat i thought I would welcome you to my humble abode...

I have been at Hill Farm for nearly five years and have loved every minute of it.
As I trundle up the hill on my way to the barn I feel I always feel I am leaving the city life behind me and entering into the dream of living in the countryside.

This is the view from my barn window as I work...


I love to watch the seasons come and go and the changing colours
they bring...

My workshop is my home for many hours while I sew, embroider, crochet, embellish and create.


When you arrive you are immediately taken back in time to a bygone era of simpler times and the wonderful ethos of 'Make Do & Mend'...



I have tried really hard to make it a home from home environment to help people relax when they visit instead of a sterile classroom often associated with workshops.



I want my customers to kick off their shoes, grab a cuppa and spend a few hours putting the world to right while enjoying some much treasured creative time...
I'm a firm believer that everyone should do something creative every day to help soothe our souls in our fast society of modern day living.



Creativity is SO much more than just getting a project done from beginning to end in a set amount of time using a set amount of resources.

It is about exploring...
It is about developing a style that reflects your passions...
but most of all it is about learning a little more about yourself.


I am lucky that I can change the setting around to suit each session making events something different each time...
Over time I have catered for a wide range of fun events other than just sewing.

Birthdays...


Afternoon Teas...


Charity Craft Workshops...


Children's Craft Sessions...


Family Personalised Workshops


As you all know I am a lover of all things vintage & handmade and my little workshop is filled to the rafters with snippets from that golden age of vintage...













Anytime you fancy popping by do come and say hello...
At the moment due to family commitments I am only open on Fridays 10.30-3pm

I'm hoping to run some more workshops as soon as time allows...
In the meantime I will be on Create & Craft TV soon, writing on my blog, offering tutorials and loads of inspiration as well as sewing my little heart out to keeping me busy.

You can also find out more details on my website here

In the meantime toodle-ooh for now...
