I have been an Art Teacher for many years, working in both formal and informal education to design and deliver the art curriculum.
More recently I returned to education and completed my Masters in Printmaking at Plymouth College of Art achieving a Distinction.
My teaching experience and printmaking have intertwined to establish workshop delivery and collaboration as a natural part of my practice.
I have worked as part of a group, as an assistant artist and as a project lead on local, national and international projects.
I currently offer 'Lower Case' and skills based workshops.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss projects, collaborations and workshop offers.
Lower Case is my mobile printmaking workshop which travels in an old suitcase.
Using a postcard format the sessions are designed to generate conversations. As people sit to print together and share resources they are invited to print and talk. This is a way of gathering stories, opinions, and project evaluations.
I regularly work with Scary Little Girls Feminist Theatre company, most recently, making 'radical bunting', zines and postcards to gather the stories of the Greenham Common Woman's Pease Camp.
I offer a range of print techniques that can be adapted to suit each project.
Please be in touch at email@example.com to discuss options.
I offer skills-based workshops in a range of printing techniques that can be developed with minimal equipment.
I work with mono-printing, collagraphs, Gelli plates, Lino and tetra pack.
My many years of teaching experience mean that I teach skills which quickly enable people to develop their own visual language and style of working.
I currently offer a monthly Saturday morning print club @theartroomredruth.

I also offer bespoke printing sessions at my Krowji studio in Redruth.
