I am available to run a variety of Story, Art and Craft, and Natural Art themed workshops for both adults and children.
I am trained as an Arts Award adviser for Discovery, Explore, Bronze, Silver, and Gold Level.

Here are some of the sessions I have run the past:
Storytelling and creating, Painting, Weaving, Mask making,
Paper boat making, Mural Painting, Shield decorating, Hat making,
Paper flower folding, Tie dying, Hanging mobile creating, Dream Catchers,
Wishing Sticks, Natural Mandalas, Mosaics, Nature Jewellery, Crowns.
TEXTILE & YARN COMMISSIONS
I have created a number of textile art installations and yarn bombs for various companiesincluding Charities, Schools Theatre Companies, and arts organisations.
A yarn bomb is a unique style of street art that is made up of Crocheted or Knitted yarn to make a beautiful and colourful display. This displays can be created on a particular object such as a Bicycle or bench, or can be hung like a tapestry. These are great projects for collaborative working in schools or with community groups.
OUTDOOR ACTIVITY SESSIONS
I am available able to run outdoor sessions to work with children to develop resilience, self esteem and confidence. I can run sessions such as Outdoor Art, Exploring and scavenger hunting, Den Building, Fire Circle Activities, Story Telling, Pumpkin Carving etc.
I am qualified as a Level 3 Forest School Leader and am currently teaching regularly in two primary schools.
I have worked in many schools across Peterborough teaching forest school sessions and outdoor activites throughout the years.
Part of what makes Forest School Pedagogy unique is that the sessions are enduring over a number of weeks so please contact me if this is something you are interested in.
