About Us

The shop and teaching centre is run by me, Susan Eleanor Sands. I have been involved in crafts for 50 years and teaching for 25.

There is a warm welcome for everyone who comes to the shop for a chat, a cup of coffee or to participate in any of the on-going craft sessions and we have many regulars who have become friends.

The courses run from the Old Flower Shop are mainly general teaching classes and walk-in craft sessions where you can come to the shop with your own project and help will be given on an hourly charge basis.

There are also specialised craft courses. The aim of these courses is to teach the basics of specific crafts or improve your skills in crafts you are already familiar with. 

We aim to provide all the necessary materials as part of the course fee and courses will generally be set up to allow you to take home a completed item. Any exception to this will be stated on the course details. See all the information on the day courses at the bottom of the page.

You can get to us by car and by bus from Stourbridge.
