Gill Colthart's Craft Classes on Cruise Ships

I am one of these really lucky people whose hobby is their work.

I first taught on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship when I was a passenger on a transatlantic crossing, and I joined a lovely group of ladies who crafted every morning. We had a lot of fun whilst sharing skills and, because I had already been teaching crafts for about 15 years,  I liked the idea of contributing to enrichment programmes on cruise ships.

Since then I have taught on over 20 cruises for Cruise & Maritime Voyages, Fred Olsen, Cunard & Saga.

I teach various crafts including decorative/canal boat painting, tatting, crochet, silk ribbon embroidery, paper crafts, jewellery making, origami & gift wrapping. 

I offer something to appeal to most crafters as each project is designed with beginners as well as more experienced crafters in mind. The classes are relaxed and fun and many new friendships are made in the "craft room" - be it in a classroom, conference room,  bar  
or dining room! 

We live near Edinburgh, Scotland but our alternative life, when we are not at home is travelling around Europe in our motorhome. this is also a lot of fun, seeing new places and meeting lots of interesting people. Without fail I usually end up running classes in places such as a beach in Barbados and a campsite in Portugal

These are a few of my projects for 2016/17 cruises. There are more pictures of my work on the
