Collaborative Work and Workshops

I have worked with schools and community groups on projects lasting from a few days to a year.

Carer group in 2016 on my ‘Out of the Ordinary’ course. Six weeks of working with fabric paper and stitch. Written and delivered for Hertfordshire County Council Family Learning Unit as part of their programme for better community mental health.

A six week course designed to give groups a chance to take a break from everyday worries , to explore, learn and create. Participants were introduced to the work of some inspirational textile artists and looked at their use of texture and colour in the first session. Next, starting from things they brought in that inspired or concerned them they made their own creations with paper, fabric and stitch. All materials used were ‘ordinay’ easily available and cheap but the results were quite extraordinary.
