We will conduct our workshop in a beautiful purpose built, black timber light filled Textile studio in Debbie's Cornish garden. Its a source of inspiration for textile lovers and is home to a number of different types of looms and other weaving equipment. It is not open to the public except for Cornwalls Open Studios, once a year, as this is Debbie actual working studio.
