I offer workshops to suit all levels of age and ability.
Creative workshops to suit your needs from childrens' parties to corporate business days.
Current practice involves working in primary schools delivering workshops in mosaic, African textiles, silk painting with a cultural focus and various craftforms which takes me all over the country.
I also offer workshops to adults at Lamport
Hall in Northamptonshire and give workshops, talks and demonstrations to a number of guilds and community groups.
I am an active member of the Batik Guild and I create work for exhibitions and commissions.
Works include a textile hanging for the National Trust at Hardwick Hall, Derbys as part of the Sheffield Childrens' Festival, a commissioned Christmas card design for English Nature and winner of Leicestershire County Councils' 'Capture a Moment in Time' Millennium competition.
Works are in private commissions worldwide including Saudi Arabia, Poland, Taiwan, Philippines, UK and USA

Two day mosaic workshop at SS Osmund and Andrew's RC Primary School, Bolton - May 2021
"Our children of all abilities were able to engage with the production of our school mosaic. In particular, children with SEN thoroughly enjoyed this experience; commenting it was relaxing and made them feel happy. The children were involved in every step of process from design to the final grouting. They worked in groups and with Andrew’s expertise, created something that was truly wonderful.. This activity will have a lasting memory for the children and staff at our school." - Sharon Doyle, Deputy Head
