IN PERSON and VIA ZOOM
The Covid pandemic created an opportunity for me to put many of my courses online as stand alone courses. It has also give me plenty of experience working live on Zoom doing talks or workshops. If you are interested in talking with me about these, please use the contact form in the first instance.
When we go back to having workshops in real places and in person, I will continue to offer only longer 3-5 day workshops in equipped studio spaces. Please contact me to find out where I am teaching next. I regularly teach at West Dean, Committed to Cloth, and 2021 will see my re-scheduled workshops at Urban Studio North.
I am now offering mentoring to individuals or groups as a way of helping people extend their practice without coming to a formal class. I can do these both fee to face and online. Please contact me to find out more.
LECTURES FOR GROUPS – real and virtual!
I am happy to travel within a 40 mile radius of my home town of Eastbourne to give talks in person when safe to do so once again. Alternatively I am happy to give talks via Zoom. Zoom talks and in person talks are based on Powerpoint presentations, but when giving talks in person I come with samples and quilts as well. I have my own digital projector and laptop but require screen, projector stand and extension leads for talks given in community halls etc.
The lecture I give can highlight particular aspects of my career such as how workshops have influenced my work, how membership of groups have created particular pieces of work and how my MA developed the work that followed. But these are all variations on this:
As this suggests, this is entirely about my work, inspirations, the intentions behind some of the my artwork as well as my more decorative work, and the journey I am still making. So it also looks at some of the work I am preparing for the future.
I have also prepared a talk on PROCESS v PLANNING which looks at the different ways that pieces of work come into being and discusses the premise whether it is better to plan your work, or be led by process.
