Workshops and summer schools

I run day and two day workshops and longer summer schools designed to stretch creative imagination with a strong emphasis on intuitive exploration and pushing beyond boundaries. I work with a combination of stitch, painting and mixed media processes to create pieces in response to land, sea, sky and trees. I am happy to deliver workshops to Embroiderers Guilds, Textile and Art groups. The following give a flavour of the workshops I offer....

  • Layers in land and seascapes’- a textile approach   explore methods of layering papers to form surfaces for stitch...
  • ‘Changing the surface’   experimental  use of collage and layering with gesso, fabric, acrylic paint and mediums  to integrate texture into the surface...
  • 'Developing sketchbooks as a rich resource'  a creative workshop working with a free approach to generating ideas through a working sketchbook.

 Contact me to discuss your requirements.
