About Kay Dudman

Yarn Craft Tutor & Designer 

Welcome!  I am a craft tutor and designer; I specialise in knitting and crochet, but I also offer hand embroidery and tatting.  Handicrafts, in particular yarn and thread crafts, have been an interest of mine for many years, and I’d love to share your journey in creating craft items with classes, hints & tips, patterns and my Crafty Cavy Community on Facebook!  

Kay Dudman, Handicrafts Tutor

My Approach

I enjoy teaching and I believe learning should be fun.  I am happy to demonstrate how something can be done, but I also recognise that there are other methods, and if a different way suits you – go for it! It is by experimenting that we find out what works for each of us. Handicraft should be enjoyed!

My Process

Every stitch and each technique is demonstrated in a clear video that can be watched again and again, in slow motion and in close up so that it is easy to see how to create particular stitches and use specific techniques.  Of course, there are right-handed and left-handed versions!

Unique Framework

I have developed the ONE STEP TM structure, which follows a logical sequence from getting started, reading a pattern, practising the techniques through to finishing your handicraft project!  You can then share a photograph of your project in the community for us all to admire!
