Talks & Demos

Perfect for social group events looking for a speaker and those seeking inspiration.

Kym loves to chat about her experiences and adventures in the crafting (and non crafting) world.

Talks are approx. 35-45mins in length and I welcome any questions. Cost start from around £30 and are dependant on title selected and distance to travel.

I will bring along the MAKE! The Lakes Pop Up Shop for a chance to purchase some creative kits, packs and supplies. Perfect for treating yourself to a creative project and great for crafting!
