Workshops

For a broad range of groups and individuals, I offer opportunities to enrich lives both professionally and personally.

I create a warm, friendly and playful environment where confidence and ease of individual expression are maximised.

Enthusiasm and energy levels are infectious and the compulsion to create beautiful art irresistible.

Who For

Anyone and everyone: from five to seventy-five-year-olds in or out of school/college; individuals or groups of up to 30; novices or experienced practitioners; those affected by mental health difficulties; teacher trainees; family groups; leaners of English as a foreign language. Mixed age groups and abilities also work well.

Where

Either at Arts Lab (Dartington) or my home and studio in South Devon or with you, wherever you are. All the workshops are fully equipped and mobile.

“The art looks fantastic and the children had such a brilliant experience.”

St Maurice Primary 

What Makes Them Special

You work with a practicing artist with over thirty years’ exhibiting and teaching experience and a strong belief in fostering creative thinking and making in everyone.

Together we will try something new, challenge what we take for granted in our daily lives, do stuff that feeds our spirits, take creative risks, have fun and make art.

All sessions are tailored to individual needs or the specifications of each group.

You will have the opportunity to learn in a collaborative environment with experts and teachers of other disciplines, for example, in music, dance, film, writing or theatre. Click here to see students’ work 2017 , students’ work 2106  and students’ work 2015
