Craft Instructing
Following early retirement from teaching in 1994 and retirement from legal work with the Citizens Advice Bureau, more recently, Trish has been able to concentrate full time on her first love, crafting, and she produces a variety of crafts which are sold both locally and nationally at craft fairs.

Early in her working life she assisted her mother in her toy making business and taught handicrafts in a hospital for the disabled. She continues teaching many of her crafting skills, especially knitting and crocheting to fellow travellers as well as demonstrating at craft fairs.

Trish has travelled widely and has been a regular cruiser for the last 20 years, both with her late partner and more recently as a solo traveller. Thus she is very cognisant with the way if life on board a cruise ship.

Trish appreciates that amongst cruisers there is a mixture of experienced crafters and newbies. The projects she offers must be of interest to both groups. Therefore she hopes to offer new skills which will be of interest to the experienced crafter and projects which will appeal to newbies, so that both groups can leave her classes with a sense if achievement.

Below are some examples of Trish's Craft:
