I am a member of Craft in the Bay, Makers Guild in Wales and work from my studio at Cardiff Pottery Workshops.

I run workshops teaching felt making & plant dyes, in schools colleges and the wider community, for all ages and all abilities. Workshops can devised and delivered tailored sessions to suit a particular theme.

As a creative practitioner at Coychurch Primary exploring the Celts, initiatating very innovative approaches to learning in which the children developed their hand/eye coordination with finger knitting, designing torcs and costumes, dyeing fabrics with naturally sourced materials and an 'accidental cave painting' session that led to the children creating their own Celtic language.
