Workshops & Mentoring



I have been a Workshop Leader and Mentor for 16 years and have delivered dynamic, innovative and engaging programs for participants aged 5-adult which have and can be adaptable according to age, ability and numbers. The workshops are based on various art traditional and untraditional Art & Design techniques including, medieval graffiti, portraiture, painting, drawing, landscapes, mental-well being,  and much more. I also deliver Global Arts surrounding arts and crafts from different countries, cultures and historical traditions. I have worked all over the country and provided workshops to schools, community settings, festivals, fetes, archeologists, mental well-being groups,  local government councils and youth groups independently and in connection with DNMGS, DiscoverYourBest, Workshop Network, ABC Arts, WEA, Wisemoves, Trapmedia and Creative Partnerships . I have met splendid groups and individuals who make the delivery of the workshops something very enjoyable and exciting for participants and myself.
