IMPORTANT NOTICE

I have now set up a suit of online courses delivered via Zoom.

 

Firstly I am delivering skills project which look at 3 techniques or different types of materials in a group of 3 sessions. Each of these sessions will have their own focus but will lead to a final project you can complete in your own time. All classes are Friday afternoons 1-3.30pm.

Secondly, I am offering Seascape, Moorland (both 1 day) and Woodland  course (2 day). 

To sign up to these courses please contact me using the contact button on this website. Let me know which courses you are interested in and I will send you further information about the projects, materials and resources before you decide to sign up.

Quality of workshops is important to me and I have undertaken professional training to ensure smooth and well designed Zoom sessions where students have a good balance of guidance on techniques and their own time to complete projects.

EXISTING COURSES

I have been teaching for nearly 30 years, mainly in Secondary Schools in a range of creative subjects. I have a wealth of knowledge and experience of arts and crafts techniques and deliver to a broad audience.

More recently I have delivered a range of workshops from one day, two or three days, residentials and year long courses. Students comment on how relaxed and supportive my approach to delivering quality, fun and informative activities is and how they can use new skills to develop their own practice. I work in regular settings but am also frequently invited to deliver courses at Embroiderers Guilds and other Textiles networks. 

I have a passion for teaching and an enthusiasm to pass on skills and support others in their learning. It's something I love and am always open to new challenges and learn new methods of developing mine and others textile practice.

NORTH YORKSHIRE OPEN STUDIOS 2020 ONLINE

This event didnt physically take place this year but it went online! This video gives a little more informtion about my processes and my current working environment. Apologies I look like a frightened rabbit caught in headlights! 

RAITHWAITE ESTATE RESIDENTIAL

I was pleased to be invited to deliver a 3 day residential course at Raithwaite Estate, Sandsend in October 2019. This was organised in conjunction with Nunnington Galleries. The workshop was a Seascape/ Landscape inspired by the local area in North Yorkshire. The course included overnight luxury executive accommodation, all meals and tuition across 3 days as well as access to all the Spa Facilities throughout the duration.

The previous residential course was covered by the prestigious COAST magazine and a journalist took part in the full experience. A copy of the 6 page article can be found in the June 2020 edition of the magazine. A great read and really does sum up the experience had by those attending. 

Another residential is planned for Autumn 2020 and please visit Raithwaite Estate for further details. TBC due to current situation this has now been cancelled.
