But don't take my word for it, read what former participants say about recent workshops on the main workshops page...on my website.

In 1992 I achieved a distinction in my teacher training PGCE, which allowed me to share my ideas, my love of the creative process and my knowledge of art and design techniques. 
Since then, helping many many people of all ages to realise the joy of making artwork has been a big part of my creative life.
If you or your group want a tailored experience from art and/or design subject areas below - just ask. Likewise, if you want more information please email me via my contact page on my website or leave a message here on the blog and I'll be in touch very soon
Looking forward to meeting you sometime soon
