Maggie is a fully qualified teacher holding the following full level City and Guilds qualifications:
  • Fashion and Design
  • Patchwork and Quilting
  • Further Education Teaching Diploma

Maggie taught in Malvern and Bedford for four years prior to coming north in 1979 to teach at Scarborough Technical College. The creation of Gowland Farm Craft Workshop in 1991 was a natural progression from Maggie's teaching in the outlying villages in the area. The residential courses on the farm ran successfully for ten years and Quarry Close Cottage is a continuation of this. It is her hope that the craft workshops will be a new dimension in learning and those enjoying her hospitality will find a tranquil haven where they can explore their own creativity and depart refreshed, energised and inspired.
