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. Mentoring is a 2 way process which relies on both parties doing some preparatory work. I will set you some questions to answer about your practice and I would also ask you to send me (via dropbox) a selection of images of your work/sketchbookwork. We will arrange to meet when I can see some of your work in the flesh and we can then talk through your next steps. I will then send you an action plan based on our conversation and organise a follow up session in a few months, or whenever appropriate.
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.
