This is a 3 day residential course running at Higham Hall. It will not only be an opportunity for you to complete a Moorland artwork made from recycled materials but also an opportunity to find out how I gain inspiration and the processes I use from start to finish.

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.
