I teach at my own studio in Eastbourne (Studio 11) and at various venues in the country. I am available to teach full or half day workshops, or give talks, and can be contacted via the form on the Contact page.
The subjects I teach concentrate mainly on print or dye based work with or without stitch; design into print; or developing personal responses. I am currently offering a City & Guilds Embroidery course running over 2 years before the existing qualification comes to an end. After this I will develop a similar programme as I have found a need and a joy in combining design, print processes and stitch in a challenging course.
My lectures are about my journey in textiles; the creative use of photography in textiles; mixed media textiles; art v. craft; the use of colour in quilts, and the use of text in textiles.
Also I have developed a Mentoring Scheme for textile artists – whatever the medium. This involves working together, reviewing current work and working practices, setting goals and action planning to achieve those goals, and follow up tutorials to review progress. These can be repeated over a period of a year with 2-3 meetings to review work and progress. For details please use form on the Contact Page
