My creative workshops are designed for all abilities and levels of experience. Each one is designed to allow participants to guide their own outcomes and work at their own pace within the timeframe provided. Every workshop runs with a group size of no more than 8 or 10 (depending on the venue), to ensure that each participant gets one-to-one help and support during the session. All of my workshops are available for individuals to attend, private group bookings, fun celebration parties, after-school programs, school holiday activities and regular learning sessions. I can also provide a mobile workshop service - if you can't get to me......I can come to you (suitable venues required).
