Hi, I’m Carol, and I have a passion for all things crafty, and just can’t resist trying out new techniques and materials. My varied career includes working in all levels of education, nursing and being a librarian!
Highlights include running the arts and craft activities on summer play-schemes to felting (my current craft) workshops for adults. I have my own crafty business Carol’s Cottage Crafts and love sharing some of my skills with a wider audience through StraightCurves. I also arrange regular craft fairs in Matlock too!
I run lots of felting workshops at StraightCurves, all of which are suitable for complete beginners! I am also beginning to teach jewellery making and beading – keep an eye out for my new workshops as I’m always thinking of new things to do with sparkles and beads!
