She says ” The work I produce includes hand-woven, knitted, felt items, jewellery and much more. I enjoy working with bright colours and my work often includes shisha mirrors, beads and sequins. As well as producing work to sell I have run workshops for children in libraries in Cornwall as well as travelling to the Isles of Scilly to work with the young people and adults there. Throughout the year I also run workshops for adults on a variety of topics such as feltmaking, papier-mâché, fabric dyeing etc. I have also been into schools to work with children on subjects including weaving, feltmaking and papermaking. I have also worked for organisations such as Arts for Health, Truro Young Women’s Centre, Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change and Penwith Housing Association.”
If you belong to a group or organisation and would like me to run a workshop for you please feel free to contact me. I am happy to travel around the UK.
