‘Design & Make is a series of art work shops I have devised so that children can transform their unique drawing ideas into fabulous outcomes without losing their own creative integrity along the way.”
“Each workshop is designed to encourage children’s confidence in their own creativity as well as teaching them a number of techniques and skills. they will be shown how to use specialist tools such as lino cutters and silk screens safely and effectively.”
“They can apply these techniques using their own drawings as a starting point to produce a completed piece of artwork by the end of each session. This can be proudly displayed at home or given to a loved one as a gift.”

Adults Design & Make Art workshops
Design and Make adult art workshops are two hours long and can be given in lino printing, rubber stamp making, block printing, screen printing, needle felting, wet felting and stencilling and pin drawing. Workshops are £15 each per workshop and can be hosted in people’s own homes from Monday to Friday, in the day or evening, with or without children:
“Essentially, I see these workshops as an opportunity for adults to shake off their creative cobwebs and learn a new skill during the day, whilst spending time with friends (babies are welcome at no extra cost!). Of course, if you prefer to be ‘sans enfant’ you can book an evening session. Beware lino cutters and wine can be a lethal mix! And oh yes, men are welcome, too!”
“If you fancy flexing your creative muscles, why not host a workshop in your home with a group of 5-8 friends. All relevant materials will be provided and the host gets a 50% discount on all sessions.”
