John Gates used to be a miner, he now teaches embroidery and has developed a fine skill in tatting, an old art first recorded as being a sailors pastime over 200 years ago. Sailors would make designs for their wives or loved ones back home on the long voyages.

Join John at ShedQuarters Maesteg, he will teach you the skill and perhaps you could make something original for a member of your family.

A film about John has been made by Bridgend Films and can be seen below.
