Workshops

Living in an old French farmhouse has allowed me to create a dedicated studio /workshop space. Where I regularly run textile related workshops , we gather and work together to create a varied response to different starting points.
The peaceful rural environment of Ramon is a special place to work .

Testimonials 

A textile workshop at Ramon with the immensely talented Ann Stephens is a joy! She creates a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which to inspire and instruct . Ann’s passion for textiles and stitching is infectious and you will come away brimming with enthusiasm and ideas for your own future projects.                    Anya Walkden Nov.2020

 

My knowledge of natural dyeing and hand stitching has increased since I took my first workshop with Ann Stephens five years ago. She has taught me how to use walnut dye, solar dyeing and rusting techniques, which I have now have explored further. Anns home and studio is totally inspiring, full of her own and other contemporary textile artists work.                                                                                                                                          Yeshe Khandro  Summer 2020.

I had a wonderful day at Ann Stephens' workshop at Ramon, surrounded by lovely countryside and Ann's inspirational work.  From her very clear instructions, I learnt how to do English paper pieced patchwork without the papers - which was a revelation!   Also ribbon embroidery, which I had always shied away from.   I have been sewing and crafting for many, many years, but this shows we are never too old to learn and there could not be a better place to do so!
