Workshops & Classes with Debbie Tomkies
About our workshops
Debbie teaches a wide range of textiles workshops – from hand-dyeing with natural and synthetic dyes, knitting, printing, weaving, felting and more! Hover over the pics to see!
Debbie’s friendly, relaxed workshops are held both online and in person. Her classes are small so there’s plenty of time for questions and personal attention.
Workshops can also be tailored to suit so if there’s something you are interested in, please email or call. Our workshops make a great baby shower, wedding party, birthday party or a just time to get-together with friends.
Looking to learn something specific?
Debbie is happy to offer one-to-one tuition, either in person at her cosy studio in Altrincham or online via Zoom/Teams.
On our in person courses, all materials are included – we provide high quality materials and comprehensive, professionally illustrated photo handouts. We also include tea, coffee and biccies.

‘I love teaching workshops and courses – part of the pleasure of doing something I love for a living is in knowing that other people have shared my passion and enthusiasm, learned something new, had lots of fun and generally had a good time!
Teaching is a learning process for the tutor as much as for the students so I like to keep a comments book for feedback. Here are some of my favourite excerpts…’
