About the tutor

I had heard all about Lynn  the 'Bag Lady'!  I think she and I have something in common as I am often referred to as the 'Basket Case'.  I finally got to meet Lyn in Aberfoyle where she is involved in running a Craft Gallery/Shop. Her bags are really fabulous - the colours - the shapes - and practical too, with her special way of making the handles.   So now you can learn to make them too, in the cosy and light hayloft  workshop at West Moss-side. I might join you too 'cos I can never resist another bag for putting things in - to join all my baskets.(Kate Sankey Nov 2009)
