In this section you will find bullet point style instructions to accompany the YouTube videos of designs made by me for television shows. Where possible the link to the show will be included, but these links may not work on mobile devices unless you have downloaded the appropriate app. The link will be for the whole show, so it will be necessary to fast forward to the relevant demonstration. Not all the designs are demonstrated in the show, but they are all shown at some point.
Please be aware that these instructions are very different to the tutorials for sale in the shop, which are extremely detailed and full of step-by-step photos and advice on how to develop your own variations.
