Jo has run a workshop for Janie Crow and the London knitting and stitching show.
She has designed patterns for Airedale yarns and Janie Crow and has exhibited at The Waltham abbey wool show and even opened it one year !

Jo says about the Mandala Shawl …..
“It’s versatile in that it can be made in any colour way, could be bigger or smaller with a range of edgings adapted to make a scarf or a blanket and made in any fibre wool cotton mohair etc etc and any weight “

Jo will teach how to make the motifs, how to join and put together and give lots of ideas how to edge it, adapt it and make it your own.

“I hope you’ll be inspired and confident enough when you go away to make your own individual wrap- not a carbon copy of mine” says Jo
