Workshops

Every student has their own reasons for attending workshops, and in my experience as a tutor, they can be varied. I like to teach through demonstration, then support and encourage students as they work independently. I hope to inspire, encourage and share my enthusiasm, whilst aiming to meet the needs of each student on an individual basis.

My own making has developed with a grounding in techniques and hours of exploration and experimentation. So, I’d like to offer workshops to cater for a range of learning; for those interested in the ‘destination’ (SKILLS BASED), or the completing of a made object to those wishing to make a ‘creative journey’ (SKETCH-BOX), where the process is more important than a finished piece of work. Of course sometimes there is an overlap, and I always like to be flexible and workshops can often throw up unexpected ideas!

SKETCH-BOX WORKSHOP

  • suited for artists and makers
  • focus on experimenting and exploring
  • tutor input with open ended outcome
  • opportunities to process and develop ideas independently
  • work independently

SKILLS BASED WORKSHOP

  • suitable for beginners, intermediate and advance students (B, I, A)
  • focus on technique and/or material
  • tutor led with continued support and input
  • opportunities for more confident students to work independently
  • pre-determined outcome
