What to expect at one of my workshops
A wonderful time where you will learn new skills and usually take home a finished item to use or wear. I encourage individual creativity and can adapt many of my workshops to suit students of all ages and experience. You can see my course outlines here but do contact me if you have any questions.
About me as a tutor
I have over thirty years experience as a freelance tutor at all levels and abilities from eight to eighty usually teaching various jewellery making techniques, felt making and papier mache. Over the last few years I have been a mentor to students attending the Craft Angels Network scheme run by Model House, passing on my teaching skills to graduates wanting to work in community arts – I also delivered the business skills workshops for the scheme. I am also a Dynamo Role Model, a WAG funded scheme promoting entrepreneurship to young people. I endeavour to enable students to create to a professional standard and to complete projects that will give confidence and perhaps spark further interest and new adventures. I enjoy the bonding experience that occurs when people are working creatively in a group which is often absent in isolated practice.
