Workshops

Many of the workshops and projects I deliver are for individual organisations, schools or communities. However, here you can find all my public workshops that are open to everyone. I look forward to meeting you at one of them soon.

Thank you so much for the workshop you gave yesterday, I thoroughly enjoyed the day and felt that I had achieved something. Your expertise and manner both helped me to feel at ease in a world that I would not normally find myself in, so thank you. A great day.

As Covid restrictions are removed. I want to ensure going forward that anyone coming along to a workshop I deliver continues to feel safe and happy whilst enjoying their time to be creative.
 
You are welcome to continue wearing a mask during workshops if this would make you feel more comfortable.
 
I will be continuing to keep windows and doors open to improve ventilation where possible.
 
I work in lots of different venues and some are still encouraging people to wear a mask when moving around communal areas.
