Artist Educator

 

I run community classes around Art, craft, cooking and gardening and often finding one leads into the other. My methods employ experimental practices and learning through doing which is accessible for people with all ability levels and from any background.

AIMS

  1. Breaking down perceived barriers surrounding arts and craft practices.
  2. Developing an array of positive, and productive educational opportunities.
  3. Educating across the age range using environmentally sustainable activities.
  4. Spreading awareness of home crafting techniques.
  5. Encouraging community sharing of inherited practices from differing ethnic backgrounds.
