Passionate about wool, silk and other natural fibres, Ginny teaches (and hosts other crafters') workshops at her new young business, Crafty Rhino, that include weaving, spinning, sewing, embroidery, macrame, and felt crafts amongst others. Her own main focus in 2019 is advanced techniques in knitting and crochet, currently combining raised and overlay crochet with gorgeous Mandalas, see photos, alongside promoting eco-friendly crafting and natural fibres. She also hosts craft weekends.

Right on the main road through Colwyn Bay, and opposite the new Conwy County Council offices, above the shops Altered Image hairdresser and Curtain Magic, with a main route bus stop outside.
There's a lovely park opposite the Centre, great for a picnic, or the beach is just a 5 minute walk, as are the shops, bars, and cafes of the town centre. The Welsh Mountain Zoo is just around half a mile up the hill and Llandudno is about 4 miles.
