Workshops

I am an experienced, qualified teacher and Forest School Leader with a CRB, insurance and full driving license.

I offer a wide range of workshop opportunities for children aged 3 -18 years and adults both indoors and outdoors using a wide range of materials and techniques. It is my aim to reach and communicate with all in the community and I tailor my workshops to suit the needs of each participant. I offer pre and post workshop advice and teachers’ notes to extend the opportunities for all participants.
