I take a down to earth and gentle approach to teaching, which means there’s lots of encouragement to help students development and remember that it takes time to learn and develop a new skill. There are many different learning styles so it’s really important to find what works for you. I therefore tend towards developing a student’s ability in practical processes and allow their confidence and skill to develop naturally. Courses can be designed to suit one off lessons or short courses.

Paper & Plaster Sculpture

Before a student joins me on a one-to-one course in clay, pyrography or printing etc. it’s important to learn as much as I can about a student’s interests and intentions - it means I can design their lesson plan to ensure that the fundamental skills are covered and a suitable development route is agreed, that it feeds their curiosity and interest and they get as much out of learning as they can, as well as supporting them to identify what else they can do to develop their interests once the course is complete. If ever they’re unsure about what they want to do I offer taster sessions so they can find the answer themselves.
