Maggie offers workshops which give an introduction to botanical printing on fabric and on paper. Her workshops are hosted by other organisations and offered to the public, or are provided by arrangement for a group.


Maggie has held workshops at Sefton Park Palm House, Liverpool (February and May, 2019) and at Cedar Farm Gallery, near Ormskirk (two workshops in May 20§9). Due to demand and very positive evaluations, both venues have asked Maggie to offer further workshops. 

Maggie's next  workshops are:
