I share my own creative life and journey through my exhibiting, teaching, books, coaching and work in the arts and cultural sectors. My book ‘Mark-making in textile art’ and my teaching aims to reach and encourage a wider audience to find and develop their own distinctive individual artistic voice as a source of personal creativity and life satisfaction.
My next course ‘Responding to Spring’ is at West Dean College 16-19 May 2019. More information here: https://www.westdean.org.uk/study/short-courses/courses/slw08789-hand-stitching-a-personal-response-to-spring
For many years I have taught masterclasses/weekend workshops on working with the seasons, landscapes, mark making, usually using hand stitch. I work collaboratively with the commissioner to create these one off events which are tailored to suit the venue, interests and level of the group. Masterclasses can be of varying duration; fees and travel expenses are agreed on an individual basis. I teach in the English language.
I am currently concentrating on completing my second book in time for publication in the summer of 2019. I hope to return to leading longer workshops and creative retreats from 2021. Do email me if you would like to find out more.
