I run workshops for colleges, Embroiderers Guilds, Art and Textile groups and galleries. My workshops are about nurturing creativity, and encourage experimentation and self-expression. Each workshop is tailored to suit the learners and the projects they are engaged in.


I believe in empowering learners to trust their own decisions, solve problems and create. I use nature as a starting point to inspire the projects.


I am a passionate advocate of culture and the arts. I aim to help learners develop skills of research, invention, out of the box thinking and self-belief.
