I run day and two day workshops and longer summer schools designed to stretch creative imagination with an 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  Textile and Art groups, with due consideration given to distance to travel. The following examples give a flavour of the workshops I offer; use the contact page to discuss your requirements, I will consider workshops and talks on Zoom.

  • 'Print: compose: stitch' a 2 day workshop with print collage and hand stitch on a seascape theme...
  • 'Layers in land and seascapes’- a textile approach   explore methods of layering papers to form surfaces for stitch.
  • 'Developing sketchbooks as a rich resource'  a creative workshop working with a free approach to generating ideas through a working sketchbook.
