gelli printing with no5workshops



Get all those family and friends you've been missing together online even if you don't live in the same house/place/or even country! all you'll need is a zoom link from me; £20 pp 4 - 7 people, £15 pp 8 - 12 people

In an otherwise largely digital world, we watch, we listen, we scroll and we read, enjoyable but for the most part passive activities. Making and learning a new process, especially in a group, generates energy and ideas. You will experience the joy and satisfaction derived from a creative process, and have a fun memorable experience to remember in these weird times! In my workshops you will be shown, enabled, encouraged and inspired.

You will come away from a class feeling empowered and excited about the potential of your creativity. The workshops are not necessarily to be seen as complete experiences where you leave with a finished product, rather to leave with ideas, potentials, and an expanded toolkit for your own development. Workshops are for anyone who is looking to get into, or back into, a creative activity. As a result they work equally for complete beginners and practising artists, designers and teachers, even the kids can join in!

I recently had the design team from Liberty for a special day long workshop, they came to get messy and explore new processes to enrich their design toolkit.

With over twenty five years of professional teaching experience, I continue to share knowledge with creative adventurers of all ages.

Welcome all!
