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!

|And what a great two days – Mary is such a lovely person and a great teacher. I’ve come back really feeling that I have mastered the basic techniques of twining and am looking forward to experimenting with various materials.||
I really enjoyed it and now will probably spend way too much time twining Mary is such an inspiration, and teacher and so easy to understand, she was great, I loved her.
|Thank you so much for a fabulous two day twining course. I learnt so much – not just the course content on twining but you are an ace and model teacher.|
