“Art engages children’s hands, minds, emotions and senses…”

I am an artist working illustratively with embroidery, wire and print. My creative practice explores the importance of storytelling and imagination. Inspired by childhood tales, I create mixed media art pieces for exhibit, with folkloric narratives that intrigue.

Employing some of the techniques I use in my own practice, I deliver art and craft workshops for children of all ages, inspiring and creatively captivating even the youngest of little ones through playful hands-on making. Nurturing a love for creativity from an early age is a wonderful way to engage in play, harnessing well-being and encouraging confidence in self-expression and communication - important tools for growing up great.

I am currently delivering an exciting weekly program of art clubs and creative workshops in Cannock Chase, Staffordshire, making beautiful things with primary and preschool children. My preschool workshops are relaxed family-friendly sessions combining crafts and imagination, fun and fine motor skills for a fantastic creative, sensory and social experience. The workshops run every Friday morning. There’s no need to book, just pop along with your little one for an hour of lovely company, crafts and creative play.

Fridays: 10-11am, Hednesford Library, Hednesford
£4 per child, £2 for siblings
