Masterclasses, workshops and talks for colleges, schools, groups, festivals, museums, galleries, nature conservation organisations and more...

I am a trained teacher with a heart for helping others to explore and enjoy their own creativity... and I love sharing the delight that I find exploring the natural world through art. In 2020 I've taken my workshops on-line, offering workshops and talks for individuals and small groups.

Each workshop is bespoke, tailored to suit the group, with nature and place the main sources of inspiration. Often porcelain or other modelling clays are used, along with natural materials and found treasures, or simple printmaking techniques. Skills are taught where needed, stories of the place shared, nature is enjoyed and closely observed…. and most importantly everyone is given the freedom and support to enjoy their time creating.

"I had the best day!" 8 year old on fungi-inspired workshop for families

"You were so lovely and approachable. It was inspiring to learn how you worked and where you drew inspiration from. It really made me think about the ways in which I work, how I could approach my work differently." from a porcelain masterclass for degree students

I am also available for talks about my work, and the tales of places, people and the natural world that inspire me.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss a workshop, masterclass or talk for you or your group. You can also subscribe to my mailing list for details of public workshops.
